Following sensational reviews in Edinburgh, New York and London the multi-award winning, international hit Mies Julie comes to Galway for just eight performances.

In the smouldering kitchen of a remote South African farmhouse 18 years after the end of apartheid, a single night of tenderness and brutality unfolds between a black farm labourer, his white master's daughter and the woman who raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare as John and Julie battle over power, sexuality, memory, mothers and laid.

This explosive new adaptation of Stindberg's classic Miss Julie from the internationally acclaimed director Yael Farber and Cape Town's Baxter Theatre gets straight to the drama's dark and steamy heart.
