The CANADIAN PREMIERE of Neil LaBute's Adaptation, from the play by August Strindberg. In his electrifying new adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie, Neil LaBute, Provocateur of the theatre as much as Strindberg himself, transports the classic play of power, class and seduction to an estate on Long Island's Gold Coast just before the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Against a glittering Jazz-Age backdrop, Mistress of the House Julie, and ambitious servant John, face off in a gripping, night-long encounter. As the balance of power shifts often and dangerously - sometimes with exquisite subtlety, sometimes stark brutality - LaBute masterfully reinterprets Strindberg's timeless erotic struggle between a man and a woman. This thrilling, essential Miss Julie superbly embodies both the passionate spirit of the original and the unflinching style of Neil LaBute. Directed by Tim Chisholm Starring: Rafaela Lewis, Dan Mousseau and Jade O'Keeffe Co-Producer: Trevor Jablonowski Stage Manager: Deborah Lim Costume Design & Props: Daina Valiulis Set Design: Rebecca Ballarin Assistant Set Design: Julia Howman Lighting Design: Travis DeWolf
