United Kingdom: Previously banned Swedish play premiers in English
Banned in the United Kingdom for 50 years when first written, Strindberg’s play ‘Miss Julie’ shocked critics across Europe with its frank portrayal of sexuality and inter-class relationships in 19th century society. Now Canterbury’s Gulbenkian Theatre is to host the world premiere of a 21st century English adaptation of it.
The Swedish play ‘Miss Julie’ is a “tale of lust, class conflict and broken boundaries” which has been adapted, translated and transformed by the UK Touring Theatre. It will be shown at the Gulbenkian Theatre in Canterbury from 13 May 2013.
