Miss Julie (1979)
Directed by Bill Merrow
Strindberg (1849 - 1912) wrote Miss Julie in 1888. It was first performed in Denmark in 1889.
"The play when first written was something of a theatrical innovation with its absence of acts, though it lasts much longer than a one act play. Strindberg also broke several theatrical conventions with his instructions for the staging of the play and it seems right that this Prompt Corner production should continue Strindberg's challenge by being in the round.
The plot could be simplistically stated as a 'poor little rich girl' tragedy but the subtleties of Miss Julie's character as she ranges from willful promiscuity to indecisions make this a compelling piece of psychological theatre.
The casts includes Caroline Bryan as Miss Julie. She last appeared as Sheila in 'An Inspector Calls. Chris and Julia King are to play Jean and his wife"
From Scene October 1979.
