In his world premier translation and modern adaptation of Miss Julie, Artistic Director of The New Moon Repertory Theatre, Per Brahe sets his adaptation in the 1950’s American South. It takes place just before the arrival of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a story about a black man and a white woman caught in deep lust for one another despite racial and social dangers and limitations. It is a story about two people in conflict with their race and class. Strindberg's play was written following the industrial age, just prior to the emancipation of women and the rise of the working class. These issues present a compelling dynamic when set in the racist climate of the American South where the status roles between white women and black men were rigidly set within the American racial context.
