THE DANCE OF DEATH
"A profoundly seminal work"
A new version of Strindberg's seminal work by Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Night Alive, Girl From The North Country), commissioned by the Donmar Warehouse. A precursor to modern classics such as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and works by Ionesco and Samuel Beckett. This world-premiere by one of Ireland's most celebrated playwrights starred Daniel Lapaine (Catastrophe, Zero Dark Thirty), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Indira Varma (Game Of Thrones, Obi-Wan Kenobi).
