St. Ann’s Warehouse presents The Baxter Theatre Centre at the University of Cape Town in association with South African State Theatre production of MIES JULIE, Written and Directed by Yael Farber. Based on Miss Julie by August Strindberg
Music and Sound Design by Daniel and Matthew Pencer.
In the smoldering kitchen of a remote estate 18 years after the end of apartheid, a single night, both brutal and tender, unfolds among a black farm laborer, his “master’s” daughter, and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are revealed as a deadly attraction spirals out of control between John and Julie who battle over power, sexuality, mothers and the land. Haunting and violent, intimate and heartbreaking, the struggles take place among the characters and with their ancestors, laying bare questions of what restitution and freedom can really mean and what losses can and cannot ever be recovered.
