Theatre Department presents world premiere play, Julie (25f)

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.

The play is a collaborative project between CMU alum and visiting professor, Maridee Slater, and her Columbia University colleagues, Dianne Nora and Jolene Noelle. The three have been workshopping the script with cast members since February and the debut presentation of the play will be here at CMU.

Julie (25f) will be presented in the MPAC Mesa Experimental Theatre Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, faculty/staff and $6 for students.

Julie (25f) is rated R.
