Midsummer the longest day of the year a flirtation between a young aristocratic woman and her father's servant becomes more than the Miss Julie bargained for.
A duo in a dance of power, sex, dreams and violence swirling out of control: Miss Julie and Jean, her father's valet, dreaming of a different life, bring their conflict of class, wealth and gender into the cook Kristine's arena of the kitchen. Miss Julie, a psycho-sexual drama filled with obsession, ambition and manipulation, remains Strindberg's most compelling work. 2012 marks the 100 year anniversary of Strindberg's death and the conflicts of his Miss Julie and Jean continue to resonate with today's audience.
Craig Lucas, won the 2004 OBIE Award for Best American Play for Small Tragedy, has also penned the plays Reckless, Prelude to a Kiss, Stranger, This Thing of Darkness, Singing Forest, and The Dying Gaul.
