MISS JULIA

Co-Produced by Chopt Logic, Vueltas Bravas Producciones and Mitchell Productions.
A bilingual adaptation by J.Ed Araiza, based on the original play Miss Julie, by August Strindberg with additions from the cast

Set in Colombia on Midsummer Eve, Miss Julia and her servant Juan have an encounter that will change their lives forever. As Juan tries to rise from the depths of his servile life, Miss Julia wants to escape the bonds that tie her to a meaningless upper-class existence. The result is a power play of love, lust and a battle of the classes that becomes violent and seemingly out of control.

This bi-lingual production, performed in English and Spanish, is a clash of cultures, a dance of death combining heightened physicality and rich naturalistic text. This unique take on Strindberg’s text makes Miss Julia as profound today as it was 100 years ago.
