A one-time political prisoner now living in isolation is convinced she recognizes the voice of a good Samaritan as someone from her own dark past. Can it truly be the same man? At once global and intimate, this bracing Olivier Award-winning play that has become a contemporary classic considers both the social and personal implications of abuse and retribution that remain relevant today. Set in a country transitioning back to democracy, Death and the Maiden is a modern thriller with a haunting conclusion. This gripping story of guilt, suspicion and revenge will be unforgettable.
