The Fountain Theatre presents the world premiere of Stephen Sachs' adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie. A sexually charged social drama, this re-imagining reunites Sachs with Ovation Award-winner Tracy Middendorf for the first time since their award-winning and critically acclaimed production of Arthur Miller's After The Fall.
Set in Mississippi on the night of July 4, 1964, the play explores racial and sexual tensions in a riveting struggle for power, freedom and social change. The white Miss Julie and her black chauffeur, John, struggle for independence and freedom from the personal and social demons that bind them.
The production stars Middendorf, Chuma Gault (Broadway's The Lion in Winter) and Judith Moreland (To Be Young, Gifted and Black). In addition to writing the adaptation, Stephen Sachs also directs.
