Synopsis

Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules.

When Julie finds herself alone on her father’s estate, she throws caution to the wind and gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. What begins as a flirtatious game, as the two vie for power, slowly descends into a savage fight for survival.

Miss Julie was written at a time of industrial and social unrest, a ground-breaking masterpiece that still provokes and shocks audiences today. Award-winning playwright Howard Brenton brings Strindberg’s genius to life in this brilliant new adaptation.
