Death and the Maiden

June 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The award winning London smash hit play and subsequent feature film DEATH AND
THE MAIDEN is revived in this exclusive tour by Baroque Theatre Company. Gripping high drama, with great intensity, this is a unique and first-rate thriller.

Set in an unnamed country that is emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship, the play
explores the after effects of repression on hearts and souls in vivid and compelling
style. Paulina Escobar’s husband Gerardo is to head an investigation into past
human rights abuses. Paulina is convinced that the powerful and charismatic Dr.
Miranda supervised her abuse as a political prisoner.

Conflict ensues as their lives cross paths and Paulina, gun in hand, captures the
Doctor and puts him on trial, Escobar doesn’t know whether to believe his distraught
wife or his persuasive new friend. This is an enthralling, intellectual and emotional
tug of war with the human psyche laid bare.
