Synopsis: Generally, it's the tortured who turn into torturers."" -Carl Gustav Jung. 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, Death and the Maiden explores brilliantly the issues of torture, power, vulnerability, ethics, and trust. An award-winning play by Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman, forced into exile in 1973.

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: John Kapelos, John Mahoney, Carolyn Seymour and Kristoffer Tabori.
