About the Event: 

It’s Chinese New Year in 1940s Hong Kong and celebrations are in full swing.

Julie, the daughter of the island’s British Governor, crashes the servant’s party downstairs. What starts as a game descends into a fight for survival as sex, power, money and race collide on a hot night in the Pearl River Delta.

British-Hong Kong playwright Amy Ng adapts Strindberg’s thrilling psychological classic into a newly politically-charged production.

Commissioned as part of Storyhouse’s Season 11 of original drama, Miss Julie is revived by New Earth Theatre and Storyhouse.


★★★★★ “Vital, timely adaptation of Strindberg’s play.” The Stage
