“Don’t you know it’s dangerous to play with fire?”
Midsummer night in an old manor house in the North East. For one night only servants and masters are equal, and drink and dance together into the small hours. With the Lord away, his daughter, Miss Julie, strays into the servants’ quarters in search of the Head Butler, John. As the two play with fire, their mutual attraction drives them together with fatal consequences.
Strindberg’s electrifying play of sex and class comes to passionate life in a powerful new production by Elysium Theatre Company, who previously brought us The River.
By August Strindberg and translated by Michael Meyer, directed by Jake Murray and designed by Louis Price, Miss Julie will feature Alice Frankham, Danny Solomon and Hannah Ellis Ryan, and an ensemble of local Hexham actors as the Servants Chorus.
