She was dancing with the gamekeeper, right in front of his Anna. Dragged him away from her. I mean, would you or I do that?”

Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden, 1888. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules.

When Julie finds her self alone on her father’s estate, she gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. A flirtatious game descends into a savage fight for survival.

Brenton brings Strindberg’s genius to life in this brand new adaptation.

“Confident and earthy... All three performances are superlative... Razor-sharp... Hamblin is a whirligig of febrile intensity.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Spare, fluent... Particularly and deliciously unnerving... Hamblin is magnificent... Holds you gripped in pity and terror.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Remains riveting... Finely balanced, well-wrought, emotionally charged performances... As real and sensational now as ever.”

Clare Brennan (Observer)

“Intense, visceral and powerfully performed... Two contrastingly impressive performances.”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“A very classy production... Hamblin’s Julie, in white muslin, has just the right mix of hauteur, coquettishness and frenzy.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Sometimes small is beautiful and that is certainly the case with this new production... Tensions sizzle nicely.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“A faithful, often intense rendering... Mature, straightforward, production... Keeps the interest properly piqued.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“A respectful adaptation... Faithful to the period and opens with a beautifully paced passage of silence... Thought-stirring.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)
