Summary

‘There is a sordid and disgusting atmosphere,which makes the immorality of the play glaring and crude. There is the very questionable theme in these days of the relationship between masters and servants, which this play tends to undermine.’ Lord Cromer, who banned performances of Miss Julie from the English stage in October 1925

It’s Midsummer’s Eve in the kitchen of a nobleman’s house and his haughty daughter Julie flirts and plays with Jean, her father’s manservant. But it’s a dangerous game and once she has been seduced by him he holds the upper hand.

Miss Julie, Strindberg’s mighty play on power, sex and class is presented here in a coruscating version by Frank McGuinness.
