Distant Star is a theatrical adaptation of Roberto Bolaño's novel of the same name, which weaves the author’s memories of life and death under Pinochet’s American-backed dictatorship in Chile into a perverse, seductive noir. Maddy worked with theater company Caborca to produce its world premiere at Abrons Arts Center in New York City in 2017.
