PLAY STRINDBERG

September 11, 2014 @ 7:45 pm - October 11, 2014 @ 7:45 pm

£14.50 – £19.50

The 25-year marriage of Alice, a resting actress, and Edgar, an old soldier, would be perfect – if they didn’t want each other dead. The vicious cat and mouse games they play on the desolate island outpost which is their home, are interrupted by the arrival of Alice’s cousin and former lover, Kurt.

Dürrenmatt takes the characters and situations from Strindberg’s classic Dance of Death to create this gleefully spiteful black comedy, written in 1968.

Greg Hicks is one of the UK’s leading classical actors. He has worked extensively for the National Theatre and the RSC, for whom he recently played King Lear. He won the 2003 Critics’ Circle Award and received an Olivier Best Actor nomination for playing Coriolanus at the Old Vic.

Multi award-winning Sally Dexter is one of Britain’s most respected actresses. Her credits include Sam Mendes’s Oliver!, Patrick Marber’s Closer and she played Lady Macbeth opposite Rufus Sewell. Many film and TV roles include Day and Night and A Touch of Frost.

Last in Bath in Laurence Boswell’s Fifty Words, Richard Clothier has worked extensively with the National Theatre, the RSC and Propeller.

Alistair Beaton is regarded as Britain’s leading political satirist. His work for television includes the award-winning A Very Social Secretary and The Trial of Tony Blair. He is the author of the hit West End play Feelgood, which won the Evening Standard Best Comedy Award in 2001.

Nancy Meckler was Artistic Director of Shared Experience for 22 years where her work included the award-winning productions of Anna Karenina and War and Peace. She was the first woman director at the National Theatre with Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and has worked extensively with the RSC.

20th Century master Friedrich Dürrenmatt is best-known for The Visit, which won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award as the best foreign play in 1959.
