August Strindberg was one of the most extreme, and ultimately the most influential theatrical innovators of the late nineteenth century. “Miss Julie”, his best-known and most performed play was written in 1888 and caused public protests when it was first staged. This is the story of a torrid affair between a manservant and his mistress. It is Strindberg’s masterpiece in which he presents with startling modernity the conflict between power, sexual passion and social position. Written at the height of his powers, he treats sex and marriage with a frank realism that was previously unknown in the theatre.
Today “Miss Julie” is regarded as remarkable for the same reason early critics and censors found it so shocking: it is the first play in which sex is separated from love. Although the play’s importance was not widely recognized during Strindberg’s lifetime, its place in modern drama, particularly as an example of naturalism, is now virtually undisputed.
