Strindbergs In Repertory: Mies Julie
About Mies Julie
Farber’s fierce adaptation of Strindberg’s MISS JULIE resets the classic play to a farmhouse in the Karoo of South Africa on the evening of the annual Freedom Day celebration. When the white Afrikaans landowner’s daughter, Julie, falls for her father’s charismatic Xhosa farm laborer, John, their erotic evening together erupts into a brutal battle fueled by gender, race, power, and ancestral domain.
Recommended for ages 18+. It contains nudity as well as graphic depictions of sex and sexual violence, which some may find triggering.
