SYNOPSIS:

Ad Astra’s final production for 2022 is the chilling Death and the Maiden, written by Ariel Dorfman and directed by Jacqueline Kerr. Set in Latin America, the story centres around 3 main characters: Paulina Salas, played by Sandra Harman, a woman whose horrific kidnapping, torture and rape at the hands of government officials comes back to haunt all three characters. Her husband Gerado Escobar, a lawyer who has just been appointed to a commission charged with investigating murders carried out by the previous dictator’s regime, is played by Gary Farmer-Trickett. And Tom Coyle plays Dr Roberto Miranda, an enigmatic and mysterious man whom Paulina believes to be her torturer, though his guilt is somewhat
ambiguous.

This is not a play for the faint of heart. Exploring themes such as trauma, memory, justice and injustice, freedom, female empowerment and forgiveness, we are taken on a tense journey which will hold a mirror to us all, as we grapple with some of these difficult themes.
