The Dance of Death

$10-$75

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 Alice's cousin 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 modern masterpiece to life in a savagely comic and bracingly intimate production.
