The Harold Pinter Theatre (formerly The Comedy Theatre) in the West End has been presenting Ariel Dorfman's thriller about a violated political prisoner who faces her troubled past in the shape of her antagonist, since October. Despite positive reviews, the play starring Thandie Newton, Tom Goodman-Hill and Anthony Calf, is closing a few weeks early on 31st December.
The play first premiered on stage in 1991 and won an Olivier Award and critical acclaim straight off - it was adapted for the big screen by Roman Polanski in 1994 and starred Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley. The story centres on Thandie Newton's character Paulina, a political ex-prisoner who suffered violence at the hands of her sadistic captor, doctor and faceless rapist Roberto, played by Anthony Calf. Several years later, has that same mysterious stranger reappeared at her and her husband's secluded beach-home? This taut, chilling drama will have you guessing the outcome until the end.
