Miss Julie

Written by August Strindberg

Adaptation by Penny Penniston
Directed by Donald Beck

Performance Dates

July 17 through August 2, 2015. All performances are at 8 pm except Sundays, which begin at 3 pm.

Miss Julie is August Strindberg's naturalistic tragedy about sex, greed and manipulation. Told in one act over the course of one evening, the play deals with the power struggle between the aristocratic Miss Julie and her father's handsome, ambitious valet Jean. What begins as a flirtatious contest for power, rapidly escalates to a love relationship - or is it just lust? - that is fully consummated. Over the course of the play, the battle for control swings back and forth between them until Jean finally convinces Miss Julie that the only way to escape her predicament is to commit suicide.

Although originally banned by the censors after its first public production, "Miss Julie" has since become one of Strindberg's most popular and frequently performed plays.
