Digging Up the Past

Chilean playwright Ariel Dorfman’s play ‘Death and the Maiden’ is currently on stage at Paliz Theater House.
The 60-minute play, directed by Sina Rastgou, is about Paulina Salas, a former political prisoner in an unnamed Latin American country who had been raped by her captors, led by a sadistic doctor whose face she never saw. 
Years later, after the (also unnamed) repressive regime has fallen, Paulina lives in an isolated country house with her husband, Gerardo. When Gerardo comes back from a visit to the president, he gets a flat tire. A stranger named Dr. Miranda stops to assist him. Dr. Miranda drives Gerardo home and later in the night he returns.
