Paulina Escobar, an ex political prisoner, lives an agoraphobic life in an isolated house with her husband, Gerardo. He returns home one night with a kindly stranger, Dr.Miranda. Paulina is horrified when she recognises Miranda’s voice as the captor who brutally tortured her 15 years ago. Her desire for revenge is ignited.

BUT has she got the right man….? Like all deeply resonant myths, Death and the Maiden is a simple story with a profound and haunting impact.

A play which audiences will carry out of the theatre and into life New York Times
