by Polly Stenham
after Strindberg

From 31 May
Running Time: tbc


August Strindberg's Miss Julie finds a new home in contemporary London, as Carrie Cracknell (The Deep Blue Sea) directs a cast including Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner).

Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them.

Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean. It descends into a savage fight for survival.

Julie will broadcast live to cinemas by NT Live on 6 September. Search for your nearest venue and book tickets here.

Fuelled by social division, Strindberg’s masterpiece remains shocking and fiercely relevant in this new version by Polly Stenham (That Face, Neon Demon).
