Baroque Theatre Company presents the exclusive tour of Ariel Dorfman’s award-winning, smash-hit play, Death and the Maiden (pictured, credit Kellie Colby Photography) on Thursday 13th June at the Majestic Theatre, Darlington.
This thrilling drama challenges audiences to judge guilt or innocence as they are confronted with a tragedy that has no clear solution. Sadly, in a world populated with dictatorships and human rights violations, it is as relevant today as when first written.
It is a narrative of how victims subjected to unjust violence struggle to heal. It explores the intricacies of memory and madness and the uncertainty of truth. It captures the imagination provoking deep feelings and thought days after viewing.
In 1992, Death and the Maiden won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and has been adapted to both film and opera. Written by human rights activist, Ariel Dorfman, whose works have been translated into more than 40 languages and performed in over 100 countries.
The exclusive UK tour of Death and the Maiden is helmed by award-winning Artistic Director Adam Morley, Director Sarah Gain and Producer Claire Bibby. They lead a phenomenal professional cast, Andrew Fettes (Gerardo Escobar) and Keith Hill (Roberto Miranda) with Claire Bibby (Paulina Salas).
