"SENSATIONAL. THE PERFORMANCES ARE ELECTRIFYING." - THE INDEPENDENT
"THE TEMPERATURE NEVER STOPS RISING" - NEW YORK TIMES
Following sell-out runs and sensational reviews worldwide, this multi-award winning 'smash hit that has been wowing audiences' (Daily Telegraph) comes to Singapore for a strictly limited season.
In the smouldering kitchen of a remote South African farmhouse, twenty years after the end of apartheid, a single night of brutality and tenderness unfolds between a black farm labourer and his white master's daughter. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare as the couple's deadly attraction spirals out of control and they battle over power, sexuality, memory, mothers and land.
This explosive new adaptation of Strindberg's classic Miss Julie, from the internationally acclaimed director Yaël Farber and Cape Town's Baxter Theatre Centre, 'gets straight to the drama's dark, steamy heart' (The Guardian).
