This controversial play of its day, Miss Julie centers on dominance, control, and the battle of the sexes. The characters move from their typically mundane lives into a previously unexplored world of passion and danger.
Miss Julie takes place on a Midsummer's Eve in the kitchen on the estate of Miss Julie's father, the Count. Miss Julie (Skye Hersh) is drawn to the Count's valet Jean (Mike Cox), who is particularly well-traveled, well-mannered, well-read, and who also happens to be engaged to the Count's cook, Christine (Diane Machin). Over the course of one evening the characters explore two of Strindberg's favorite topics, Darwinism and society's class struggle.
