A one-time political prisoner now living in isolation is convinced she recognizes the voice of a good Samaritan as that of the tormentor from her captivity. Can it truly be the same man? At once global and intimate, this bracing Olivier Award-winning play that has become a contemporary classic considers both the social and personal implications of abuse and retribution that remain relevant today. Directed by Cinnamon Schultz after her deeply-felt production of Sam Shepard’s “A Lie of the Mind” last season, this gripping story of guilt, suspicion and revenge will be unforgettable.
