The world is changed after the Great War.
Anything seems possible now.
Miss Julie, heiress to a stately home, is searching for an escape. John, her servant, is dreaming of a brighter future. When a May Day party throws them together, tensions sizzle. But are the old hierarchies really over?
Strindberg’s controversial classic is given a modern twist.
‘Stylish, steamy and tightly wrought’ Nigel Smith, The Stage
**** ‘Gripping take on Strindberg simmers with tension… a sophisticated and exact vision’ Gareth Lyr Evans, Guardian
**** ‘The social inequalities laid bare by the pandemic are at risk of being maintained in its aftermath. Missing Julie signifies that this is a moment when we can do something about it.’ Gareth Williams, whatsonstage
**** ‘Gripping theatre that captures and holds the attention. It is a thoroughly worthwhile return to live theatre’ Richard Evans, Theatre Review North
