In a country still reeling from the old regime, the new democracy has a commission leader who is sent to investigate the old regime's crimes. The investigator, Gerardo Escobar, winds up being picked up by a kind doctor, Roberto Miranda, after Escobar's car breaks down.
Could this kindness be a ruse as Paulina, Escobar's wife, seems to think? Is this the person that tortured her while in a military detention center? With gun in hand, she'll try to find out via her own interrogation of Miranda. Who will Escobar believe?
Following Death and the Maiden, Hardin County Playhouse will present Fiddler on the Roof. That production will have auditions on Apr. 7 and 8, and shows will take place in June.
