Suspense mounts when Paulina and her husband offer hospitality to a stranger. Paulina thinks she recognizes, in their guest, the man who tortured her in prison, and she subsequently takes him hostage to find out the truth.

A stunningly blunt and compelling play, Death and the Maiden explores brilliantly the issues of torture, power, vulnerability, ethics, and trust. An award-winning play by Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman, forced into exile in 1973. Download and start listening now!

    " I think this play summarizes in a nutshell the severe emotional trauma that South American dictatorships wrought upon the continent, even if it's just about post-Pinochet Chile. The ultimate moral dilemma, and a discussion of who deserves to die, or mete out death as a punishment. "

    " This play (and I listened to it as a play) twisted and turned in ways I didn't expect, but I didn't enjoy it. The topic is a sensitive one, and this is a good reaction to 'the happening' yet I just couldn't get myself involved. Perhaps reading it would give me a different outcome, but I have too many other books to read so I doubt I will. "

    " Went in directions I didn't expect. I haven't read many plays in my time, but this one is short and easy to read. The story is pretty disturbing but definitely an interesting character study and the ending is one that you could discuss with friends for a long time. "
