Storyline

Midsummer night, 1894, in northern Sweden. The complex strictures of class bind a man and a woman. Miss Julie, the inexperienced but imperious daughter of the manor, deigns to dance at the servant's party. She's also drawn to Jean, a footman who has traveled, speaks well, and doesn't kowtow. He is engaged to Christine, a servant, and while she sleeps, Jean and Miss Julie talk through the night in the kitchen. For part of the night it's a power struggle, for part it's the bearing of souls, and by dawn, they want to break the chains of class and leave Sweden together. When Christine wakes and goes off to church, Jean and Miss Julie have their own decisions to make. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Gripping Drama
2 February 2006 | by (Grants Pass, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This play is a stark portrayal of the heavy price that must be paid when social conventions are thrown to the winds. Moral relativism as a topic of cocktail party chatter is amusing, as a guiding principle in real life one discovers that there is nothing very amusing in the bottomless pit to which it can lead. The acting of Peter Mullan and Saffron Burrows is nothing short of electrified and provides a neon lit twenty four hour period in which life changing decisions transport the main characters to levels of existence of which they had not previously even dared to dream. As the play begins, there is not even a hint of the journey that is in store for Miss Julie and her father's valet as their incipient flirtation with disaster rains sparks amid the tinder of an aristocratic manor house.
