The Cultch presents the Canadian premiere of Mies Julie from March 25th to April 19th, 2014. Mies Julie has become an international sensation after being deemed the unqualified favourite of the prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe at its international premiere in 2012.
This production at The Cultch is one of the highlights of an April filled with South African events including the 20th anniversary of the end of apartheid.
Based on the play Miss Julie by August Strindberg and written and Directed by Yael Farber. Produced by Baxter Theatre at the University of Capetown and the South African State Theatre in association with National Arts Festival, Grahamstown.
Internationally acclaimed director Yael Farber sets her explosive new adaptation of Strindberg’s classic Miss Julie in the remote, bleak beauty of South Africa. In the sweltering heat of a Cape Karoo kitchen, a deadly battle unfolds over power, sexuality, memory, mothers, and land. This newly menacing, passionate, and relevant allegory for a post-apartheid state in transition was named one of 2012’s Top 5 productions by The Guardian, UK and the Top 10 of 2012 by The New York Times.
