This new version of August Strinberg’s play ‘Miss Julie’, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary Britain.
Wild and newly single, Julie (Vanessa Kirby from ‘The Crown’) throws a late-night party. In the kitchen, Jean (Eric Kofi Abrefa from ‘The Amen Corner’) and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. Drawing on the festivity, social divides and intense escalation of Stringberg's tragedy, Stenham shifts the story from 19th century Sweden to modern London.
Directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live’s ‘The Deep Blue Sea’), this production will be broadcast live from the National Theatre. 120m inc interval.
