Publisher's Summary

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.

Strident

This story is full of conflict. When a woman thinks she recognises the voice of a man who raped and tortured her, she acts out her dream of revenge. However, the conflict is not only limited to the plot. The main female character, Pauline, not only berates her tormentor, she also berates her husband with a voice that grates on the listener very quickly. If you make it to the end you witness an interesting situation unravel, with a clever twist. But the author leaves the final solution up to the listener. Could have been named Misery if that name were not already taken.
