A visceral new version of Strindberg’s compelling, bitingly funny battle of wills.

On an isolated island, military captain Edgar and his wife Alice live a bitter life, their marriage soured by hatred. When the possibility of redemption and escape arrives for Alice in the shape of their former comrade Kurt, it seems that Edgar is prepared to use his very last breath to make their lives a living hell.

Conor McPherson's version of The Dance of Death premiered at Trafalgar Studios, London in December 2012.

'it's impossible to look away' Time Out

'a grotesque comedy that anticipates the work of theatrical absurdists such as Beckett and Ionesco... a profoundly seminal work' Guardian

'shockingly funny... its raw savagery is thrilling and its bleak existential despair almost Beckettian' The Times
