A dangerous game of ambition, power and lust.
It’s Chinese New Year and celebrations are in full swing across post-war Singapore. Julie, daughter of a British tycoon, crashes the servants’ party downstairs. But what starts as a game descends into a fight for survival, as sex, power, money and race collide.
Playwright Amy Ng’s adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie transports us into a tumultuous era, where the disintegration of the British Empire is set against the rising consciousness of nationalism sweeping across Asia. Co-produced by Singapore Repertory Theatre and Hong Kong Arts Festival, this is a startlingly provocative play where differences of class and race rub against each other like tectonic plates, resulting in an eruption of sexual powerplay and class manipulation. Gripping to the very end, Miss Julie challenges preconceptions about racial supremacy, sexuality and taboo relationships.
