Baxter Theatre Centre at the University of Cape Town
In association with the South African State Theatre presents
Based on August Strindberg’s Miss Julie
Written and Directed by Yael Farber
Music composed by : Daniel and Matthew Pencer
In a remote estate eighteen years after the end of apartheid, a single night unfolds among a black farm laborer, his “master’s” daughter, and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are revealed as a deadly attraction, both brutal and tender, spirals out of control as John and Julie battle over power, sexuality, mothers and the land. Haunting and violent, intimate and heartbreaking, their struggles lay bare questions of restitution and freedom, what losses can and cannot ever be recovered.
The show is presented in English with surtitles in French.
