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 herself 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.
Miss Julie returns to Jermyn Street Theatre following its previous sold-out run. It plays in repertory with Strindberg’s Creditors, also written in the summer of 1888, in a new version by Howard Brenton and directed by Tom Littler.
