Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them.

Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean. It descends into a savage fight for survival.

Adapted by Polly Stenham, August Strindberg’s play is brought into the 21st century to showcase how ‘Julie’ is shocking and fiercely relevant as ever.
