Chamber stage

In "Miss Julie" written in 1888, August Strindberg tried to Express their vision of the new drama: he wrote in the Preface to the play, which enjoyed no less popular than the main text. The censorship of late nineteenth century approach of the playwright seemed overly bold. Statement of how aristocrat is trying to take the groom, the cook, eventually was banned. Today's audience, of course, this story doesn't impress. However, the naturalism that followed, Strindberg, remains relevant. In the heart of the conflict — not social barriers, which in our time are almost non-existent, but the deeper and more universal problems. The play is played in the night of Midsummer: then, when, according to Swedish traditions, there is no class of frames. But it's just a convenient plot device that allows you to start the chain of events and characters to show their identity. Or rather — to try to understand who they are, what actually you want and who can be.
