Death and the Maiden

What happens after the dictatorship crumbles? Can one truly move forward, or does the trauma continue to play on…. It is only fair for justice to be taken into the hands of those who suffered from the abuse.. right…….?


Enter the mind of Paulina, a former revolutionary captured and tortured by the hands of a ‘doctor’ during the dictatorship that plagued her country. There was always something different about this doctor: he was the only one of her captors who played music while he had her way with her. 

Years later, the dictatorship has passed and a new order emerges, one that places her husband as an important figure in the investigation of serious crimes that ended in death. One evening while on vacation at their beach house, her husband brings home a ‘good Samaritan’ who helped him on the side of the road when he had a flat. Paulina swears she recognises the voice of her rapist: The Doctor Who Played Schubert.

Paulina takes justice into her own hands, putting the man before her on trial for his crimes. 

Ariel Dorfman writes a moving piece that brings to light the trauma of those who have gone missing during the dictatorships in Latin America. We present to you our interpretation of this modern classic with an electric quartet to help guide us through the mind of a survivor.
