The Dance of Death (Drama Classic)
Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price
Strindberg's chilling anatomy of a marriage, in which the two partners duel with each other until one is utterly defeated.
Edgar and Alice, embittered husband and wife, live on an army base on a Swedish island. Alice calls it 'Little Hell', and it's about to get worse.
Written in 1900 and consisting of two full-length plays, August Strindberg's The Dance of Death is full of destruction and bitterness, laced with grim humour. Both parts are included in this volume – though usually only the first is staged.
This English version of The Dance of the Death in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series is translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
