By Ariel Dorfman

Paperback £8.99£7.19

A woman seeks revenge when the man she believes to have been her torturer happens to re-enter her life.

Ariel Dorfman's play premiered at the Royal Court in 1991, and is now recognised as a modern classic. This 20th-anniversary edition was published alongside the play's West End revival in 2011.

Beware of turning into the enemy you most fear.'

Years have passed since political prisoner, Paulina, suffered at the hands of her captor: a man whose face she never saw, but whom she can still recall with terrifying clarity.

Tonight, by chance, a stranger arrives at the secluded beach house she shares with her husband Gerardo, a human rights lawyer. A stranger Paulina is convinced was her tormentor and must now be held to account...
