Olivier, From West End

Winner! 1992 Sir Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play of the London Season
Winner! 1996 - 5 Dora Awards
Tony award-winning Glenn Close, Richard Dreyfuss and Gene Hackman starred on Broadway in this political thriller. Set in an unnamed country that is, like the author's native Chile, emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship, the play explores the after effects of repression on hearts and souls. Paulina Escobar's husband Gerardo is to head an investigation into past human rights abuses. A Dr. Miranda stops at Escobars' to congratulate Gerardo. Paulina overhears them speaking and is convinced that Miranda supervised her prison torture sessions. She ties him to a chair and conducts her own interrogation, gun in hand. Escobar doesn't know whether to believe his distraught wife or his persuasive new friend. This white knuckle thriller is a rivetting intellectual and emotional tug of war.
