Midsummer's Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn't set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules.

When Julie, alone on her father's estate, gatecrashes the servants' party, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father's manservant, Jean. What begins as a flirtatious game gradually descends, over the course of a long and sultry night, into a savage fight for survival.

Howard Brenton brings August Strindberg's genius to life in this brilliant adaptation of Miss Julie. It premiered at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, in 2017, before transferring to Jermyn Street Theatre, London.

This version of Miss Julie is also available in the volume Creditors & Miss Julie.

Press Quotes

'Never before have I seen such urgency and conviction that these few hours on a topsy-turvy Midsummer's Eve in late-19th-century Sweden really are a matter of life or death… Howard Brenton's confident adaptation breathes new life into this much-revived classic'

Evening Standard

'A kitchen sink drama of the most intense variety… the tension starts to build from the very first sizzle in the pan'

The Times

'Riveting... as real and sensational now as ever and as socially and politically pertinent'


'Strindberg's passion play remains as resonant today in Howard Brenton's new translation as it was when first performed in the Paris of 1893'

The Observer

'Intense and visceral'
