DANCE OF DEATH

by Tom Holloway

Alice and Edgar's marriage would be perfect, if they didn't want each other dead. In this blistering jetblack comedy, 20th century master Friedrich Durrenmatt has created an electric adaptation of a Strindberg classic, stripping away the sentiment to deliver a depiction of wedded hell as brutally hilarious as a wrestling match refereed by Beckett.

We would like to advise that Dance of Death contains frequent explicit and graphic language: "Malthouse Theatre advises that some may even find the language most foul, shocking, incendiary, provocative, heinous and down-right rude. We invite you to enjoy the vulgarity of the language as these characters rip shreds off each other. It's a fight to the death and 'words are like weapons, they wound sometimes'."
