In this powerful political drama and psychological thriller, a former political prisoner finds herself face to face with the man she believes was her captor. Set in an unnamed country that is, like the author’s native Chile, emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship, the play explores the after-effects of repression on hearts and souls. This white-knuckle thriller is a riveting intellectual and emotional tug of war.
Death and the Maiden is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
