The Dance of Death

 



A revival of August Strindberg’s unsparing examination of marriage and the social institutions governing it.

From the producers: Retired military man Edgar and his wife Alice have given up on any semblance of civility toward each other on the threshold of their 25th wedding anniversary. Due to their isolation, however, they are as codependent as they are hateful. Seething with cruelty, and punctuated by absurdity and humor, Strindberg’s electrifying play was ages ahead of its time in its bleak examination of marriage and the social institutions governing it.

Playwright August Strindberg's career spanned four decades, during which time he wrote over sixty plays and more than thirty works of fiction, autobiography, history, cultural analysis, and politics. He is considered the "father" of modern Swedish literature. "The Dance of Death" was written by Strindberg in 1900 and has been revived in many notable productions with such actors as Laurence Olivier, Robert Shaw, Ian McKellen, and Helen Mirren.

The new adaptation is written by Tony nominee Conor McPherson ("The Seafarer," "Shining City"). The cast includes Cassie Beck, Richard Topol, and Christopher Innvar. Tony winning actress Victoria Clark ("The Light in the Piazza," "Gigi") directs.
