Amazon.com description: Product Description:

In his electrifying new adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie, Neil LaBute, provocateur of the theater as much as Strindberg himself, transports the classic play of power, class and seduction to an estate on Long Island’s Gold Coast just before the stock market crash of 1929.

Against a glittering jazz-age backdrop, mistress of the house Julie and ambitious servant John face off in a gripping, night-long encounter. As the balance of power shifts often and dangerously―-sometimes with exquisite subtlety, sometimes stark brutality-―LaBute masterfully reinterprets Strindberg’s timeless erotic struggle between a man and a woman.

This thrilling, essential Miss Julie, which had its world premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in 2013 with Lily Rabe as Julie, Logan Marshall-Green as John, and Laura Heisler as Kristine, superbly embodies both the passionate spirit of the original and the unflinching style of Neil LaBute.

About: As all the great dramatists since the Greek tragedians have known, class and gender roles continue to remain the two fundamental determinants of the social fabric of any culture—even one, like our own, in which the boundaries of those identities have become fluid, situational and transitory.
