About The Dance of Death

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. Tony Award winner Victoria Clark directs with a cast featuring: Cassie Beck (The Humans, Picnic), Christopher Innvar (The Snow Geese, King Lear), and Richard Topol (Indecent; The Normal Heart, Drama Desk)
