Aguijón Theater Presents
Death and the Maiden

It has been years since political prisoner, Paulina, suffered at the hands of her captor, a man whose face she never saw but whose memory grips her still in a secret terror. The dictatorship that plagued her country has just fallen, and nothing is certain. When an unexpected visitor arrives at the secluded beach house she shares with her husband, Paulina, convinced this stranger is her tormentor, confronts her deepest fears in search of that long sought after justice.

Kicking off Aguijón Theater’s 28th season, Death and the Maiden explores the psychological toll of the politics of fear – a show t for our current turbulent times.
