Edgar, a military captain, and his wife, Alice, a former actress, are preparing to celebrate their silver anniversary...25 years of living together in a place they have nicknamed "Little Hell."Inevitably bound together yet yearning to escape, the two spend their empty days by matching wits, their verbal jousts spinning a web of twisted emotion. A visitor from their past suddenly reenters their lives...will he offer them freedom from their lives or fall victim to their wicked games?

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Dance of Death

    To Stay Alive, Snipe, Snipe

    Ben Brantley

    October 12, 2001: Before the dance, there is the walk. It is not a graceful walk, at least not by conventional standards, that is being practiced by Ian McKellen in the revival of Strindberg's ''Dance of Death'' that opened on Broadway last night. His legs stiffen and stray; his basic navigational instincts betray him.
