Tonight, a stranger calls. For Paulina Salas, his voice triggers a memory she has long tried to suppress. Through months in captivity under a brutal regime she never saw her captor’s face, but she heard his voice, calm yet menacing. A voice she will never forget. When her husband invites a stranger back to their isolated beach house, she hears that voice again.
Ariel Dorfman’s explosively provocative, award-winning play is a heart-stopping psychological thriller. Written in the wake of the Pinochet regime in Chile, today it resonates even more chillingly as the world watches dictatorships crumble and retribution reign.
Argentinian born director Leticia Cáceres brings a personal awareness to this production which features an exceptional cast led by Susie Porter (Puberty Blues).
