Overview

“She was dancing with the gamekeeper, right in front of his Anna. Dragged him away from her. I mean, would you or I do that?”

Midsummer's Eve, Sweden, 1888. A night when the sun doesn't set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules. When Julie finds her self alone on her father's estate, she gate-crashes the servants' party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father's manservant, Jean. A flirtatious game descends into a savage fight for survival.

Strindberg's ground-breaking masterpiece that still provokes and shocks audiences today is brought to life in Howard Brenton's brilliant new adaptation.

August Strindberg is ranked alongside Chekhov and Ibsen as a master of theatrical realism.

Howard Brenton is a multi award-winning playwright whose plays have recently appeared at the National Theatre, Hampstead Theatre, and Shakespeare's Globe.

Tom Littler is Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
