Jewel Theatre Presents: The Dance of Death

Thursday, March 23 2017 from 7:30pm -10:00pm

Colligan Theater at the Tannery Arts Center 1010 River Street Santa Cruz, CA 95060



With a dystopian look at love everlasting, The Dance Of Death depicts the dissolution of a marriage between Edgar, an artillery captain, and Alice, a former actress. As their 25th anniversary approaches, Edgar and Alice face off in a fierce battle of wills. Their sparring proves both harrowing and hilarious, amplified by the voice of celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Seafarer, Shining City). His adaptation brings lyricism and ferocity to the story of the tyrannical captain and his manipulative wife, and the "innocent" Kurt who stumbles into their midst and quickly finds himself ensnared in the couple's wicked game.
