Kip Williams to direct Miss Julie

Kip Williams to direct Miss Julie Image

By Jack Hayes

The Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) welcomes one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative young directors, Kip Williams, for his adaptation of August Strindberg’s classic, “Miss Julie” – a play that questions issues of class, gender and sexuality.

Williams joins Robin McLeavy (Hell on Wheels, Blinky Bill the Movie) as Miss Julie, Mark Leanard Winter (Birdland) as Jean and Zahra Newman (The Mountaintop) as Kristin for a classic story of yearning, choice and class warfare.

As the current resident director of the Sydney Theatre Company, Williams has received critical acclaim for his recent revivals of Macbeth and Suddenly Last Summer, for which he won the 2015 Helpmann Award for Best Director of a Play.

Strindberg’s theatrical masterpiece is set on midsummer eve, a night filled with desire when rules are broken, class barriers set aside and the young mistress of the manor can dance with whomever she pleases.

“Miss Julie is one of the canon’s great psychological thrillers. It drips with an intoxicating sexual tension and a dangerous power play,” director Kip Williams said.

“For generations, theatre makers have been drawn to it to reinvestigate questions of class, gender and sexuality.”

Miss Julie runs from April 16 to May 21. For more information and ticket bookings phone MTC Box Office on 8688 0800 or visit www.mtc.com.au
