by August Strindberg
It is a Midsummer’s Eve. Miss Julie, bored, restless, and lonesome, finds herself at the servants' party flirting with her father’s footman, Jean. He and his mistress are soon alone in the kitchen, playing more than just a game with one another. Each is trapped, by class and temperament, and is looking so desperately for a means of escape that they risk destroying each other in the process. A roller-coaster of a play.
Miss Julie, a one-act tragedy, remains August Strindberg’s most famous work.
Adapted especially for studio performance, this Black RAT production was directed to reflect Strindberg’s original staging aims and the realistic acting approaches of Stanislavski.

Black RAT are an ideal accompaniment to Drama teaching. The whole performance and workshop supported totally what we are doing in class and went even further to ensure my students were inspired and able to put the methods used into practise.
Superb value! Highly recommended!
The performance was excellent and really helped all pupils regardless of age and qualification being studied. The standard of acting was superb.
Our pupils loved meeting the actors and learning from people in the profession. The fact that you came to us made life so much easier.
My pupils can be quite shy and the actors encouraged them with their questioning and their relaxed attitude helped to make pupils more comfortable. The workshop content was superb and clearly explored the Stanislavski's system of units and objectives. In fact many students have used this as a basis for performance since. Fantastic value for money
