"Death and the Maiden" continues in the Black Box Theatre


Death and the Maiden Penn State Hazleton’s Theatre Department will present the annual spring performance under the direction of Eric-Michael MacCionnaith, instructor in Integrative Arts. This year’s production of Ariel Dorfman’s Death and the Maiden will continue in the black box theatre of the Slusser/Bayzick Building with performances on April 14, 15 and 16.


Death and the Maiden is a drama thriller set in post-Pinochet Chile, detailing a day in the life of Gerardo, a human-rights lawyer, Roberto, the good-Samaritan doctor who stops to help him, and Paulina, Gerardo’s wife, a woman haunted by her past.  When a chance encounter brings these characters together, none of their lives will ever be the same again. 

The show includes mature themes which may not be suitable for all audiences.

Tickets will be on sale at 6:30 p.m. at the door. The theatre opens at 6:40, with the curtain set to rise at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $10, and $8 for students with PSU ID. Bring a friend and purchase two tickets for $15.                                        


Performances of "Death & the Maiden" open in the Black Box Theatre of the Slusser/Bayzick Building.
