MET: Julie (25f)
Written by Dianne Nora with Dramaturgy by Jolene Noelle
Moss Performing Art Center Mesa Experimental Theatre
March 31-April 1; 7:30pm
An original play directed by CMU alum and visiting professor Maridee Slater
August Strindberg’s character-driven battle of class and gender gets a fresh take in Julie (25f). In this new adaptation, the famous Miss Julie is transformed into a modern exploration of the playwright’s obsessions: technology, science, and the search for the true nature of Self. Drawing from sources as formally diverse as Strindberg’s forays into alchemy and social Darwinism to the obsessive, dream-based work of his later years, Julie(25f) reconsiders the classic story of an impulsive aristocrat's passionate, taboo affair with the servant who dreams of climbing the social ladder by any means necessary. Rated R
The Mesa Experimental Theatre, or MET, is a versatile space which seats up to 150 people in an almost unlimited number of possible performance configurations. Designed primarily as a laboratory space, the MET is home to both student-produced and directed performances and faculty productions with a more "cutting-edge" feel than traditional Main Stage offerings.
General Admission: $10 adults, $8 seniors, faculty/staff, $6 students
