About the Show

Written by August Strindberg

Directed by J. Deschene

In the kitchen of a Swedish Count's manor house, on the magic of a Midsummer's Eve, the free-spirited and strong-willed Miss Julie is after one thing: the affections of her father's valet, John. Getting what she wants, however, becomes a slippery slope into double standards, manipulation, and questions of "morality" and "decency." Written in 1889 by famed cynic, August Strindberg, Miss Julie's meaning can now be seen in a very different way, and as such it serves as a very different kind of warning for today's audience.

About the Director

J. Deschene is excited to be doing another Bare Bones show! No stranger to the series, her first Bare Bones play was 2017's Agnes of God. She's also directed two mainstage shows: The Trojan Women (2014) and Lysistrata (2013). Onstage, she has been seen as "Lady Bracknell" in The Importance of Being Earnest (2015) and "Lady Catherine de Bourgh" in Pride & Prejudice (2012).

 

Bare Bones: Staged Readings at Theatre@First offers directors, casts and audiences the chance to explore a wide variety of plays in a spare, intense setting.
