Midsummer's Eve is Miss Julie's time, a night filled with desire, when rules are broken, class barriers are set aside and the young mistress of the manor can dance with whomever she pleases. She chooses Jean, her father's valet, and for a few hours through the long twilight they play an increasingly dangerous game of 'what if'?

Set at the turn of the 20th Century, this thrilling revival of Strindberg's enduring classic is full of passion, power..... and lust!
