Description

In the oppressive heat of Midsummer's Eve, Julie, daughter of the Lord, is drawn into a dangerous tryst with her father's butler. As the night wears on, the couple, from opposite ends of the social spectrum, dance, flirt and fight towards an explosive conclusion that will shake the existing order to its core. Zinnie Harris' new version of Strindberg's nineteenth-century masterpiece, "Miss Julie", relocates the play to central Scotland between the wars.
