Death and the Maiden

Death and the Maiden

Written by Ariel Dorfman
Directed by Chay Yew
Jun 7 – Jul 20


Ariel Dorfman’s explosively provocative, award-winning drama is set in a rocky new democracy. Gerardo has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by a kind doctor. Sandra Oh (the award-winning star of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy) plays Gerardo’s wife, Paulina, who thinks she recognizes the doctor as the man who tormented her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before. A riveting play about revenge, trauma and forgiveness.
