Death and the Maiden

by Ariel Dorffman

The Watermill Theatre 1999

The requirements of this play for doors, patios and a sea view were impossible to achieve in the round in this tiny atmospheric venue. Instead we opted for a floor of rusted steel and a moving roof piece reflective of the emotional landscape of the piece. The faces of the missing from Chile appeared behind the audience in the final moments.
