By Yaël Farber
Directed by Dexter Bullard
Adapted from August Strindberg’s Miss Julie
In a sweltering kitchen of a remote farm, laborer John and Mies Julie, the daughter of his white master, embark on a feverish night. Fueled by drink, heat, generation-deep resentments and primal passion, John and Julie’s deadly attraction spins dangerously out of control. Dexter Bullard (Sucker Punch) directs Yaël Farber’s Mies Julie, an explosive and simmering adaptation of August Strindberg’s classic play set against the poignant backdrop of post-apartheid South Africa.
