Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

La muerte y la doncella, la obra latinoamericana mas representada en la historia del mundo, ha llegado a constituirse en un clasico sobre la justicia y el perdon, la memoria y el olvido. Dorfman se ha propuesto a explorar preguntas pocas veces hechas en voz alta: "¿Como pueden los represores y los oprimidos cohabitar una misma tierra, compartir una misma mesa?" preguntas que hoy dîa siguen tan vigentes como cuando Dorfman escribia esta obra.

Synopsis:

Dorfman's award-winning play is set in a fictional South American country that has recently returned to democracy. Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head a commission that will investigate crimes of the old regime. His wife, who was tortured in a military detention center years before, has her own plans for vindication.
