An Olivier Award-winning play comes to Melville Theatre this May, looking at what happens when a former political prisoner confronts her alleged tormentor years later. Death and the Maiden is a psychological thriller set against the backdrop of an unspecified post-dictatorship country.

When a stranger calls one night, his voice triggers a memory in Paulina Salas – one she has long tried to suppress. Years ago, when she was blindfolded, abducted and held as a political prisoner, Paulina never saw her captor. But she did hear him and decides to take matters into her own hands to prove the stranger is the same man…
