Resistance Trilogy - Death and the Maiden & Reader & Widows

Ariel Dorfman Price: $19.95

Dorfman's three most powerful political plays in one volume - with a new and substantial introduction by the author

Death and the Maiden is 'a terrifying moral thriller which combines brilliant theatricality with clear thought and fierce compassion' ~ Sunday Times

It ran for a year in the West End, was a hit on Broadway and was filmed by Polanski

Reader, premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, is about a censor who discovers that a novel he wishes to ban is describing his own life

'A veritable hall of mirrors: a mixture of Kafka and Pirandello ... a work of obvious integrity and passion' ~ Guardian

Widows, also first produced by the Traverse, is about the men who 'disappear' under totalitarian regimes and about the women who wait

'A remarkable attempt to dramatise in a semi-mythical way the consequences of recent appalling abuses of human rights' ~ Independent on Sunday
