This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.

Why See Mies Julie?

Yael Farber's Thrilling Adaptation Of A Classic

Since its Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2012, renowned South African playwright Yael Farber's contemporary reworking of the August Strindberg classic Miss Julie has taken the theatrical world by storm, earning rave reviews during its London and New York runs and spawning continuous international tours. A poignant examination of the post Apartheid era, its simmering suspense, primal passions and heavy-hitting drama are set to raise the barometer even higher at Chiacgo's Victory Gardens Theatre this Summer.

Farber transplants the action to the slowly-suffocating heat of the Cape Karoo desert in South Africa. On Freedom Day, 18 years after the Apartheid regime was abolished, Xhosa farm worker John and Mies Julie, the daughter of his white Afrikaans master, embark on a torrid affair. A whirlwind of alcohol, resentment and sexual tension that threatens the unresolved legacies that Apartheid has left behind, Faber fuses Strindberg's class struggle with questions of race, ancestry, land reclamation and above all power.
