Ariel Dorfman's explosively provocative, award-winning drama is set in a country that has only recently returned to democracy. Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by the humane doctor Roberto Miranda. But in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo's wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes another man—the one who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before.

From the Inside Flap:

Suspense mounts when Paulina and her husband offer hospitality to a stranger. Paulina thinks she recognizes, in their guest, the man who tortured her in prison, and she subsequently takes him hostage to find out the truth. A stunningly blunt and compelling play, Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden explores brilliantly the issues of torture, power, vulnerability, ethics, and trust. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: John Kapelos as Gerardo Escabar John Mahoney as Roberto Miranda Carolyn Seymour as Paulina Salas Directed by Robert Robinson. Recorded before a live audience at the Guest Quarters Suite Hotel, Santa Monica in March of 1994.

About the Author:
