One of theater's most controversial plays gets the Arrow treatment in a gripping new adaptation of Strindberg's classic. A tense and unflinching negotiation plays out over the course of a Midsummer evening in the kitchen of a country manor house in Sweden. Highborn Julie and her father's servant drink, dance, and destroy each other before the magic spell of the festival evening breaks.
Miss Julie was presented at Everwood Farmstead in August 2020 in a socially distanced semi-staged reading. Miss Julie was developed in part at an artist retreat at Everwood Farmstead in 2019.
