Cambalache Teatro en Espanol presents La muerte y la doncella (Death and the Maiden) by Ariel Dorfman, Directed by Beatriz Mariel.
Is a human being still human after falling to the depths of inhumanity? At what point does justice become revenge? At what point do individual ethics give way to the most important interests of the state? How can a person lead a ”normal” life after having been through hell? What is the price of being bound by the past and its ghosts? Can we forget about betrayal without betraying ourselves?
Ariel Dorfman’s acclaimed play depicts a politically and psychological complex battle of wills amongst three characters in an unnamed South American country. The trio in question is made up of Paulina, her husband Gerardo , and Dr. Miranda, a seemingly friendly stranger who provided Gerardo with a ride home after a car breakdown. The trouble begins when Paulina claims to recognize the man’s voice, and accuses him of being the unseen doctor who had subjected her to horrific torture during her days as a prisoner of the country’s former government.
This play will be presented in Spanish.
Ticket Price: $18 – $15
