The Victory Gardens Theater's production of Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden begins performances at the Chicago venue June 13 prior to an official opening June 20.
Directed by artistic director Chay Yew, performances will continue through July 13.
The cast includes Raúl Castillo, John Judd and Sandra Oh.
“I’m thrilled to join the theater scene again under the direction of my long-time friend Chay Yew,” said Sandra Oh in an earlier statement. “Victory Gardens Theater is doing some amazing work and it’s very exciting to be a part of it. I have always been an advocate for local theaters and it’s wonderful to be able to support one with such an important mission of new work.”
Dorfman’s award-winning drama, according to press notes, is set in a "rocky new democracy. Gerardo has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by a kind doctor. Gerardo’s wife, Paulina, thinks she recognizes the doctor as the man who tormented her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before."
The creative team includes William Boles (scenic), David Hyman (costumes), Jesse Klug (lighting) and Mikhail Fiksel (sound). Tina Jach is the stage manager.
Victory Gardens Biograph Theater is located at 2433 N. Lincoln Avenue. For tickets call (773) 871-3000 or visit victorygardens.org.
