ABOUT THE SHOW
Some plays maintain their relevance because some evils never go away. Ariel Dorfman’sstunning world-wide hit Death and the Maiden is one such work.
Military rule is over and the new democracy looks towards a brighter future. But for victims of the old regime, such as Paulina, memories are a prison. Through months of pain and degradation she never saw her tormentor’s face, but she heard his voice, calm yet menacing in her ear, a voice she will never forget. This night, when her husband Gerardo invites a stranger back to their isolated beach house, she hears that voice again.
A psychological thriller and ethical teaser, Death and the Maiden resonates viscerally and intellectually as few plays ever have. Argentinian born director Leticia Cáceres brings an acute historical awareness to this co-production with Sydney Theatre Company, featuringEugene Gilfedder and Susie Porter (Puberty Blues).
