Death and the Maiden - Harold Pinter Theatre

This harrowing story of revenge returns to the West End 20 years after it was first performed.

It tells the story of Paulina during the period just after the fall of the vicious dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

When a stranger comes into the lives of Paulina and her human rights lawyer husband, Gerardo, Paulina is convinced that he was one of her captors during her time imprisoned by the old regime.

Thandie Newton, Tom Goodman-Hill and Anthony Calf star in this critically acclaimed production.
