Miss Julie: UK Touring Theatre

Miss Julie
By August Strindberg

in a new translation for the 21st century

Directed by Denis Noonan

"Don't step down Miss, take my advice. No one will believe that you willingly descended, people will always say that you fell"

Midsummer's Eve, Sweden, 1888. The Count's daughter and his valet cross social and sexual boundaries; and must face the consequences.

While the servants' party continues in the barn outside, aristocratic Miss Julie is drawn to the kitchen and to the socially ambitious Jean, her father's valet. What starts as a harmless flirtation, soon descends into a ferocious power struggle and battle of the sexes, from which neither can escape.

Banned in the UK for 50 years when first written, Miss Julie shocked critics across Europe with its frank portrayal of sexuality and inter-class relationships in 19th century society. Now widely regarded as Strindberg's masterpiece, its vivid depiction of the class system is still as pertinent today, and has received worldwide critical acclaim.

Developed as part of Strindberg 2012 (the centenary of Strindberg's death in 1912), UK Touring Theatre presents the World Premiere of an exciting new English translation of Miss Julie; a tale of lust, class conflict and boundaries broken.
