August Strindberg's Miss Julie finds a new home in contemporary London, as Carrie Cracknell (The Deep Blue Sea) directs a cast including Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner).

Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean. It descends into a savage fight for survival. Fuelled by social division, Strindberg’s masterpiece remains shocking and fiercely relevant in this new version by Polly Stenham (That Face, Neon Demon).

Our Review of Julie

4/5

By placing Miss Julie, Strindberg’s 19th century tragedy of infidelity and indulgence, at a sweaty, upmarket house party in London, Polly Stenham has made a classic for today. With a pill-popping, coke-snorting Vanessa Kirby in the title role, this is a naturally captivating piece of theatre for a younger generation. Read more
