Polly Stenham reimagines August Strindberg’s Miss Julie in contemporary London.
Julie premiered at the National Theatre, London, in May 2018.
The physical sense of a life accelerating out of control is both exhilarating and horrifying, like being forced to watch somebody else's nightmare, or seeing a rollercoaster accelerating faster and faster and faster until the inevitable occurs.
Sleek, satirical update... All of Strindberg is there in Stenham's adaptation - sex and death, wealth and work, beauty and mess... What it does - brilliantly - is tap into the tragedy.
Provocative and profound update of Strindberg's classic.
