As their 30th wedding anniversary approaches, Alice and Edgar are locked in a bitter struggle. They’ve driven away their children and their friends. Their relationship is sustained by taunts and recriminations. When a newcomer breaks into the midst of the fray, their insular lives threaten to spin out of control. Laced with biting humour, The Dance of Death is August Strindberg’s landmark drama about a marriage pushed to its limits.

Olivier and Tony Award winner Lindsay Duncan stars as Alice. One of our best-loved actresses, Lindsay is well-known for her BAFTA nominated performances on screen in Alan Bleasdale’s G.B.H and Stephen Poliakoff’s Shooting the Past. Olivier Award nominee Hilton McRae’s celebrated stage and screen career has ranged from leading Shakespearean roles at the RSC and National Theatre to iconic films including The French Lieutenant's Woman, Return of the Jedi and Mansfield Park

Oscar winning playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz (Her Naked Skin, National Theatre) reunites with Arcola Theatre's co-founder and Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen for the world premiere of a thrilling new version.
