Aguijón Theater, Chicago's longest-running Latinx theater, launches its 28th season, dedicated to the exploration of the politics of fear, with Ariel Dorfman's La Muerte y la Doncella, directed by Sándor Menéndez.
PERFORMED IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUPERTITLES
It has been years since political prisoner Paulina suffered at the hands of her captor, a man whose face she never saw but whose memory grips her still in a secret terror. The dictatorship that plagued her country has just fallen and nothing is certain. When an unexpected visitor arrives at the secluded beach house she shares with her husband, Paulina, convinced this stranger is her tormentor, confronts her deepest fears in search of that long-sought-after justice.
