About this show

Ken Roht's Miss Julie(n) focuses on the inequity between gay and straight men, while factoring in the struggles between the haves and have-nots. Julien is a desperate and lonely gay young man, shunned by his father and his servants. Jean is a ruthless servant willing to do anything to improve his station, and his fiancé Christine adamantly adheres to convention and to unforgiving religiosity. The abstract chorus of singing and dancing servants creates a quiet but relentless chaos that compounds the psychic confusion of the central characters. This adaptation is fundamentally true to Strindberg's story despite having changed the sex and sexuality of the title character.
