MISS JULIE, a contemporary re-imagining of August Strindberg’s classic masterpiece, is on at Belvoir Street Theatre from now until 6 October.

Adapted by Simon Stone this re-imagining  resets the drama to present day Australia, with Miss Julie as a rebellious teenage daughter of a wealthy businessman seeking high political office.

“Leticia Cáceres directs Stone’s adaptation, exploring the dynamic between Julie and Jean and the shifts in mood with some sensitivity. Robert Cousins’ set and Tess Schofield’s costumes are simple and authentic, and music by The Sweats is used sparingly, but effectively to build a tension to echo that Cáceres capitalises on: her production thrilling and deeply unsettling…” – Ben NeutzeThe Guardian

“In the contemporary world of 24-hour news cycles, fame and social media, this MISS JULIE puts a whole new spin on the contemplation of who is to blame when situations get dangerously out-of-hand” – Belvoir press release
