Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules.

When Julie, alone on her father’s estate, gatecrashes the servants’ party, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. What begins as a flirtatious game gradually descends, over the course of a long and sultry night, into a savage fight for survival.

Howard Brenton brings August Strindberg’s genius to life in this brilliant adaptation of Miss Julie. It premiered at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, in 2017, before transferring to Jermyn Street Theatre, London.
