About this show

In the humid kitchen of a remote South African estate 18 years post-apartheid, a brutal and tender night unfolds among a black farm laborer, his "master's" daughter, and the woman who has raised them both. The duality of contemporary South Africa is revealed as a deadly attraction spirals out of control over power, sexuality, mothers and the land. Haunting and violent, intimate and heartbreaking, Mies Julie lays bare questions of what restitution and freedom can really mean and what losses can and cannot ever be recovered.
