Death and the Maiden

By Ariel Dorfman

What would you risk, for justice?

Death and the Maiden is a taut thriller, taking place in a country struggling to put itself together again after a brutal totalitarian regime.

Paulina and her husband Gerardo have settled in a remote beach house, attempting to rebuild their lives and forget the trauma of the past. But when, one night, Gerardo invites a stranger into their home, Paulina’s past threatens to unravel her. Convinced that the man sitting in her living room is the same man who ruined her life, she decides to put him on trial. But can she be certain she has the right man?

Death and the Maiden won the 1992 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and has since been staged worldwide. It is generally regarded as Ariel Dorfman's seminal work. This captivating production powerfully reveals the lengths to which one woman will go, to find her version of justice.

"Tautly directed by Richard Graylin... all three performers are mesmerising." - Mark Aspen Reviews
