Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Strindberg’s chilling anatomy of a marriage – in which the two partners duel with each other until one is utterly defeated. Edgar and Alice, embittered husband and wife, live on an army base on a Swedish island: Alice calls it ‘Little Hell’, and it’s about to get worse.

Written in 1900 and consisting of two full-length plays, The Dance of Death is full of destruction and bitterness, laced with grim humour. Both parts are included in this volume – though usually only the first is staged.

Translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
