About the show

Classic Stage Company presents Strindberg's celebrated drama, a bleak examination of marriage and the social institutions governing it. More…

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.

"The Dance of Death" will be performed in repertory with "Mies Julie."
