Theatre review: The Dance of Death
The pair's acidically co-dependent relationship is thrown into sharper relief by the arrival of Kurt (Daniel Lapaine,) the long-lost cousin Alice once had a fling with. Kurt gets caught up in the pair's ongoing marital problems, attempting to help what he sees as an abused woman, not realising how much they, Alice especially, are using him as a pawn in their decades-old game.
The Dance of Death by August Strindberg in a version by Conor McPherson is booking until the 5th of January at Trafalgar Studio 2.
Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes including interval.
