August Strindberg's savage comedy gets a 21st-century makeover in Dance of Death!
The Coronet Theatre, London
On a remote island off the coast of Sweden, Alice and Edgar are locked in a furiously dysfunctional marriage. As they hurtle towards their 25th wedding anniversary, their brutal sparring is interrupted by the arrival of a newcomer, and their insular existence begins to spiral out of control.
Marit Moum Aune (Little Eyolf, The Lady From the Sea) directs acclaimed Norwegian actors Pia Tjelta, Jon Øigarden and Thorbjørn Harr in a fiery new version of Strindberg’s classic, which delves into the primitive instincts that lie beneath human behaviour.
