By August Strindberg, Adapted By Mike Poulton
Directed by Joseph Hardy

On an isolated island, military captain, Edgar, and his ex-actress wife, Alice, approach the 25th Anniversary of an intense marriage. When a jolt from the past arrives in the shape of their cousin and childhood friend, Gustav, a deadly battle of wills begins. And Edgar is prepared to fight to his very last breath… Strindberg’s masterful vivisection of a diabolic union blazed the trail for modern marriage portraits like “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Red Bull Theater brings this classic masterpiece back to life with the American premiere of a new version in a savagely comic and bracingly intimate production.

THE DANCE OF DEATH ran for a limited engagement from April 9- May 4, 2013 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
