Strindberg’s portrayal of power, class struggle and the strength of sexual desire is one of the great classics of world theatre. In our version Frank McGuinness has moved the scene from Sweden to nineteenth century Ireland during the Anglo-Irish ascendancy, discovering a new slant to the claustrophobic atmosphere, the exploration of love and lust across the class barrier, and the changing roles of exploiter and victim.

Set on Midsummer's eve in the basement kitchen of a nobleman's house, we focus on the shifting relationship between Miss Julie, the daughter of the house, and John, her father's manservant. Miss Julie seduces her father's socially aspiring valet. But after the sexual thrill dies out, and with Julie's reputation and honour at stake, the relationship turns to terror, misadventure and bloodshed.
