  • Overview
    Paulina Escobar is a former political prisoner in an unnamed Latin American country who had been raped by her captors, led by a sadistic doctor whose face she never saw. The rapist played Schubert's composition Death and the Maiden whilst she is raped by various prison guards; hence the play's title.
