The Dance of Death

When an old friend comes to visit the captain and his wife, he quickly turns from saviour to prey as they toss insults like grenades, trying to gain him as an ally in their marital battleground. Strindberg's masterpiece revels in the black humour and incendiary jibes of two people locked in a deadly embrace. Only the children offer a chance to break the pattern of conflict that is their legacy. Predating Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by sixty years, The Dance of Death uses language as the most vicious weapon of all.
Author August Strindberg
