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'."
