This powerful political drama and psychological thriller by the noted Chilean writer premiered in London last summer, where it won the Time Out Award for Best Play. In March it opened in the United States on Broadway, with direction by Mike Nichols and starring Glenn Close, Richard Dreyfuss, and Gene Hackman. The play focuses on a woman who finds herself in the position to exact revenge upon a man whom she believes to have been her torturer 15 years earlier. In telling this story, the author also addresses the dilemmas which touch all our lives: innocence and evil, truth and lies, forgiveness, and revenge. This is a worthwhile addition to modern drama collections.

I thought it was a powerful read. This is a play about a victim who thinks she has met her torturer. The trauma, drama and storytelling was so intense that I couldn't put it down.Published 22 months ago by Student Teacher

I bought this for my English class. Didn't really understand it very well at first, but as a few different assignments where devoted to it, I grasped it bit by bit. Read morePublished on May 11, 2013 by Amazon Customer
I was so fortunate to see this play when it was on Broadway in the 90's. Though I wish the script was available for Kindle, I am appreciative that it is available in this format. Read morePublished on November 8, 2011 by Caroline Ann Martin
