Winner of the Lawrence Olivier Award for best new play, this play concerns Paulina, a political activist who escaped and is recovering after being blindfolded, tortured and raped by an unseen captor. Her tormentor delighted in playing Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” during his unspeakable acts.
One stormy night her husband, Gerardo, gets a flat tire and is rescued by a kindly doctor, Dr. Miranda.
Gerardo invites the good doctor home for a drink and what follows is a weekend of sheer terror.
Paulina recognizes the Doctor’s voice and sets about proving that he was the sadist that degraded her. She puts Miranda on “trial” and plots her revenge.
Death and the Maiden is a heart-stopping edge-of-seat suspense thriller. It contains strong language and adult situations and is not suitable for persons under the age of 18.
