­ CRITIC'S PICK! ­ "STUNNING. The temperature nev­er stops rising… There is more erotic heat generated by the play’s two central characters, fiercely inhabited by Hilda Cronje and Bongile Mantsai, than in any production in town.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

­­­view Photos­“An essential, riveting journey. The cast is pitch-perfect and Yael Farber proves a masterly director.” Molly Grogan, The VILLAGE VOICE

CRITICS' PICK! "Provocative… An acrobatic carnal combat." – Scott Brown, New York Magazine

Cronje and Mantsai are riveting, inhabiting their roles with a ferocious erotic intensity. Thanks to them and playwright-director Yael Farber, Strindberg’s incendiary drama is more fiery than ever.Frank Scheck,THE NEW YORK POST

★★★★★ Miss Julie has never raged quite so fiercely. Brilliant.”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian ­

★★★★ Thrums with menace and passion — electrifying.”
­Alice Jones, The ­Independent

"Raw and unapologetic... A big hit." – Steven McElroy, The New York Times


­­­­­­­­­­mjGreyBoxA_04­­In the s­moldering kitchen of a remote estate 18 years after the end of apartheid, a single night, both brutal and tender, unfolds among a black farm laborer, his “master’s” daughter, and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are revealed as a deadly attraction spirals out of control between John and Julie who battle over power, sexuality, mothers and the land.  Haunting and violent, intimate and heartbreaking, the struggles take place among the characters and with their ancestors, laying bare questions of what restitution and freedom can really mean and what losses can and cannot ever be recovered.
