Led by the powerhouse acting by Tonya Andrews, Frank Lawler, and Fernando Luna, Latino Theatre Projects presented Death and the Maiden by noted Argentine/Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman at the Ballard Underground in the fall of 2014. We were honored to engage Emma Watt as our stage director. Emma, a graduate of Princeton University, was interning at the Seattle Rep at the time. Sets and costumes were created by Kristina Hestenes-Stimson with props by Robert Harkins. Joshua Blaisdell designed the sound with Zanna Paulson providing dramatic lighting. Lisa Harrington was our extremely organized and efficient Stage Manager.

Death and the Maiden is a gripping story about a survivor of torture and rape under a brutal military rule. A chance meeting between her husband and Doctor Miranda leads her to believe that the stranger is, in fact, her tormentor. She takes him hostage while her frightened husband pleads with her to let him go. The drama intensifies as she becomes increasingly convinced that the doctor was the one who violated her, all the while playing Schubert’s hauntingly beautiful Death and the Maiden string quartet.
