Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman

Presented by A Simple Theatre

The Studio @ 620 welcomes A Simple Theatre as they present Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman.

Ariel Dorfman’s Death and the Maiden is set in an unnamed country that is, like the author's native Chile, emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship. With a twisting and turning plot, the play explores the after effects of repression on hearts and souls. Gerardo Escobar, an investigator into the country's past human rights abuses, gets a flat in the rain on his way home one fateful night. A kindly Dr. Miranda stops to aid Gerardo, and drives him home. Gerardo's wife, Paulina, herself one of the former regimes' prisoners, overhears them speaking and is convinced that the doctor is one of the jailhouse torturers. Gerardo, caught in the middle, doesn't know who to believe, his distraught wife or his persuasive new friend, and is forced to serve as mediator between the two. This white-knuckle thriller is a riveting intellectual and emotional tug of war. Starring Roxanne Fay, Steve Garland, and Giles Davies. Directed by Gavin Hawk.

September 1st-4th and September 8th-11th. Thursdays and Sundays at 7PM, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM.

General Admission $25, Students and Seniors $20
Limited Number of Red Member Tickets Accepted
