Death and The Maiden

29th September – 7th October 1995

The play concerns Paulina who, fifteen years earlier, had been picked up by the police, blindfolded, tortured and raped. Her husband Geraldo is helped by a stranger when his car breaks down. Geraldo brings the stranger, a Dr Miranda, to his house, where Paulina becomes convinced that Dr Miranda is the one who tortured and raped her fifteen years ago. Husband and wife are caught in a gripping and passionate deadlock: one liberal and judicious, the other victimised and full of hatred.

This astonishing play had its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 1991.

Part of the Barn’s 1995-1996 Season.
