Powerful, Psychological and Politically-Charged: A Timely Adaptation Of Miss Julie is Coming to Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre
It’s Chinese New Year in 1940s Hong Kong and celebrations are in full swing.
Julie, the daughter of the island’s British Governor, crashes the servant’s party downstairs. What starts as a game descends into a fight for survival as sex, power, money and race collide on a hot night in the Pearl River Delta.
Following its acclaimed run last year, New Earth Theatre and Storyhouse are bringing the Storyhouse production of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie adapted by Amy Ng and directed by Dadiow Lin to Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre next month as part of a UK tour.
This timely and vital adaptation of a psychological classic will be at the Belgrade Theatre from Thursday 8th July – Saturday 10th July and tickets are available to buy now via their box office and at www.belgrade.co.uk
Sophie Robinson returns to the role of Miss Julie, and is joined by Jennifer Leong as Christine and Leo Wan as John.
Kumiko Mendl, Artistic Director of New Earth Theatre, said , “We are immensely proud to be bringing Amy Ng’s powerful and timely adaptation of Miss Julie to live audiences, providing much needed work for our freelancers and continuing our partnership with the wonderful Storyhouse.”
Alex Clifton, Artistic Director of Storyhouse, also commented, “This is a show that throws us right back to work telling vital stories with urgent compassion on a human scale – we’re very proud to stage it with our friends at New Earth.”
The production will be staged in a Covid safe environment, following latest government advice and adhering to social distancing guidelines for audiences.
