Death and the Maiden

Death and the Maiden misses the point.

The political psychological drama, Death and the Maiden by Chilean/Argentine writer Ariel Dorfman presented by the latinotheatreproject at Ballard Underground opened this past weekend. Set in an unnamed South American Country, after democracy has been re-instated, following a brutally repressive dictatorship, a married couple, Geraldo and Paulina, accidently encounter the wife’s former torturer/rapist.
