Irish Theatre of Chicago presents The Dance of Death

October 27 - 29, 2022
Irish Theatre of Chicago presents The Dance of Death
By Conor McPherson
Directed by Rob Kauzlaric

Famed playwright Conor McPherson (The Seafarer, Shining City) brings a lyrical ferocity to his adaption of a long-married couple's toxic battle of wills.

Edgar, a tyrannical captain, and his manipulative wife Alice spar in harrowing and hilarious ways à la Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. And since misery loves company, the battle reshapes and escalates when they entangle another man in their wicked game.



Made possible by the Thomas M. Hagerty Family Performing Arts Endowment for Excellence. Co-sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre.
