The Monday Play - Death And The Maiden


Genome: [r4 Bd=19940905]

by Ariel Dorfman.

When Dr Roberto Miranda is invited to stay in a remote coastal cottage in Latin America, his presence reminds

Paulina Salas of her past - a past in which she was imprisoned and brutally tortured by a doctor who listened to Schubert. She seeks revenge as her husband Gerardo stands by, unsure of the truth of her memories, yet paralysed by the violence of her emotions.
