Published alongside the National Theatre premiere of the mesmeric but little-known play by the woman who was reputedly a model for Miss Julie and Hedda Gabler.

One sunny day in Paris, Gustave Alland, famous artist and philanderer, visits Louise Strandberg – convalescing in her brother’s studio – and casts her effortlessly under his spell. In a vain attempt to escape, she exiles herself to her provincial hometown in Sweden. But a letter propels her back to Paris and into his arms. And for a brief moment, ecstasy is hers.
