“Miss Julie” is a naturalistic play written in 1888 by August Strindberg
dealing with class, love, lust, the battle of the sexes, and the interaction among them. Set on midsummer night of 1874 on the estate of a Count in Sweden, the young woman of the title (Miss Julie, played by Samantha Clark), attempting to escape an existence cramped by social mores and have a little fun, is drawn to a senior servant, a footman named Jean (played by Stephen Kline), who is particularly well-traveled, well-mannered and well-read. Behavior between Miss Julie and Jean which was previously a flirtatious contest for power rapidly escalates to a love relationship-or is it just lust?-that is fully consummated. Over the course of the play, Miss Julie and Jean battle for control, which swings back and forth between them.
