In a nameless country a woman is tortured and raped by a band of unknown captors. The only sounds that accompany her screams are the voice of the mysterious doctor who directs her attackers and an endless recording of Schubert's Death and the Maiden. Years later, when Paulina and her husband Gerardo welcome a stranger into their home, she immediately recognizes the man's voice as that of the doctor. Seeking retribution, she kidnaps him and insists that he confess. But does she have the right man? Written by former Chilean exile Ariel Dorfman, Death and the Maiden is a dramatic meditation on ethics, memory, and forgiveness. nimbus co-Artistic Director Liz Neerland directs.
