August Strindberg’s The Dance of Death, In a new version by C. Austin Hill
Released on streaming video on November 10
Strindberg’s classic play The Dance of Death examines what might happen to a marriage when isolation and seclusion team up with cruelty and boredom. In this brand-new version, written by Lycoming College faculty member Dr. C. Austin Hill, Strindberg’s bizarre hyper-naturalism comes vividly to life—and to death—as, on the eve of their 25th wedding anniversary Alice (a former actress) and Edgar (her military Captain husband) negotiate the remains of their meager existence, the loneliness of social distancing, and the arrival of Curt (who has come to build a quarantine hospital) onto their tiny island. Dark and intense—and bitingly funny—The Dance of Death is quite a complex waltz.
