ASI Presents August Strindberg's Miss Julie by Theatre Coup d'Etat

 Originally banned in multiple countries, August Strindberg's classic Miss Julie is an examination of power in all its various modes. Taking place on Midsommar's Eve, we are thrust into the wild upheaval of the celebration and the "intense summer heat when the blood turns to fire, and when all are in a holiday spirit, full of gladness, and rank is flung aside."*Strindberg fearlessly tackles the forever raging battle of the sexes while also hitting upon class structures, love, and even lust, in this 90 minute tour-de-force by Sweden's best known playwright.
