Fri 23rd July - Sun 25th July
NEW VENTURE THEATRE
Play by August Strindberg, directed by Mark Lester
Arguably, not much has changed in the 130 years since Strindberg’s scandalous ‘Miss Julie’ was written and first performed. In today’s world, Miss Julie’s story would doubtless titillate the tabloids; a young aristocrat’s dalliance with a member of her household staff, a previous boyfriend coming out of the woodwork to detail his sexual humiliation at her hands and the innocent bystander in Julie’s affair would all be hounded for comment. Yet, hope, ambition, insecurity, dignity, social constraints and jealousy all make this tragedy so much more than a tale of lust and betrayal. This powerful play retains its ability to shock and move its audiences.
