Howard Brenton's adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie at Jermyn Street Theatre

When Howard Brenton’s new version of August Strindberg’s seminal work Miss Julie received its world premiere at Theatre by The Lake this Summer, it garnered rave reviews.  This November the production, directed by Tom Littler, is premiered in London at Jermyn Street Theatre.

Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden, 1888. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules. When Julie finds herself alone on her father’s estate, she gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. A flirtatious game descends into a savage fight for survival.

The production stars Charlotte Hamblin (Downton Abbey; Dry Land - Jermyn Street Theatre), James Sheldon (The Dover Road - Jermyn Street Theatre), Izabella Urbanowicz (After the Dance - Theatre by the Lake). This is the first staging of Miss Julie in the West End since 1980. Miss Julie runs from 14 November to 2 December 2017.
