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.
