by August Strindberg
in a new version by Niclas Olson
August Strindberg’s tantalizing and controversial 1888 drama, MISS JULIE, is revisited in an exciting new version by Niclas Olson. Telling the story of a young countess in turn of the century Sweden, Strindberg weaves a spellbinding tale of seduction and intrigue as Miss Julie and her father’s valet, Jean, taunt and tease one another over the course of a steamy midsummer’s night. (1M, 2W)
MISS JULIE received its world premiere on July 3, 2015 at the Dukesbay Theater in Tacoma, in a production by New Muses Theatre Company. It was directed and designed by Niclas Olson with stage management and music supervision by Bethany Bevier.
