June 1, 6:30pm   |    august strindberg's miss julie by cutting ball theater

In partnership with the University of Washington's Scandinavian studies department and the Cutting Ball Theater. Translated by Rob Melrose. Staged reading directed by Ariel Craft.

It is Midsummer’s Eve and there’s a raucous party in full swing—but Julie, the impetuous and imperious mistress of the estate, and Jean, her strategic servant, are spending their evening in the abandoned kitchen. Within a single night—fueled by equal parts passion and venom—allegiances are sworn and demolished, existing power structures dismantle, and these two outsiders find themselves in a ceaseless tussle to determine who is on top. Often regarded as Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s seminal masterpiece, Miss Julie is an examination of gender, class, and the tectonic collision of the two.

Miss Julie, presented here in a brand-new translation by Rob Melrose, is under the creative lens of San Francisco’s Cutting Ball Theater. This staged reading, presented by the Nordic Museum and the University of Washington’s Scandinavian studies department, kicks off Cutting Ball’s in-depth investigation of Strindberg’s play, led by Bay Area artists Ariel Craft and Megan Cohen. 

Suggested donation: $10
