Olivier and Tony winner Lindsay Duncan (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Private Lives) stars as Alice in a U.K. tour of August Strindberg’s The Dance of Death, adapted by Academy Award-winning playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz, beginning May 19 prior to an official opening May 31 at the Ustinov Studio, Bath.
Directed by Arcola Theatre Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen, the cast also features Olivier nominee Hilton McRae (End of the Rainbow, Mamma Mia!) as Edgar and Emily Bruni (Psychodrama, The Model Apartment) as Katrin.
The production will subsequently play the Oxford Playhouse, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Royal & Derngate, and Northampton before ending at the Arcola Theatre June 28-July 30.
As their 30th wedding anniversary approaches, Alice and Edgar are locked in a bitter struggle. When a newcomer breaks into the midst of the fray, their insular lives threaten to spin out of control.
The production also has designs by Grace Smart, sound design by Daniel Balfour, and lighting design by David Howe.
Arcola Theatre, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Royal & Derngate, Northampton, Oxford Playhouse, and Theatre Royal Bath Productions co-produce.
