August Strindberg’s Miss Julie

Film & Media Arts Fremont/Ballard

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.
