Rehearsing Death and the Maiden
We’ve cast and started rehearsing Death and the Maiden, Ariel Dorfman’s haunting play about what happens when a woman who has been tortured meets her torturer. It’s a gut-wrenching play about the nature of justice, memory, forgiveness, freedom, truth… lots of fun for these dark winter nights!
I’m really excited about our cast. James Haswell is returning to Headless Sullivan after performing in last year’s Out at Sea (he was the one who wanted to eat but not be eaten). Gianna Agonito and Jim Ditmars are new to HST, but not to Geneva theater, and we’re thrilled to have them. This play raises a lot of complex questions, and we’re really enjoying grappling with them. Above all, it’s a compelling story about three very real people, and it’s a joy watching these talented actors bring them to life.
