Merlin Theatre, Frome - Saturday 11th May at 7.45pm

Presented by UK Touring Theatre

Midsummer's Eve, Sweden, 1888. The Count's daughter and his valet cross social and sexual boundaries; and must face the consequences.

While the servants’ party continues in the barn outside, aristocratic Miss Julie is drawn to the kitchen and to the socially ambitious Jean, her father’s valet. What starts as a harmless flirtation, soon descends into a ferocious power struggle and battle of the sexes, from which neither can escape.

Banned in the UK for 50 years when first written, Miss Julie shocked critics across Europe with its frank portrayal of inter-class relationships. Now widely regarded as Strindberg’s masterpiece, the play has received worldwide critical acclaim.
