Don’t miss your chance to see British-Hong Kong playwright Amy Ng’s politically-charged production of Miss Julie, presented by New Earth Theatre and Storyhouse, at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre from 8-10 July 2021.
Directed by Dadiow Lin and starring Sophie Robinson (Miss Julie), Jennifer Leong (Christine) and Leo Wan (John), the production has received a host of rave reviews.
The Stage critic awarded the show five stars, describing the piece as “a tremendous production, balancing beauty and brutality”.
Set in Hong Kong in the run up to the Second World War, this adaptation examines the UK’s colonial past. Julie is the daughter of a high-profile British government official. With her father away for the weekend, Julie comes downstairs to see her Chinese driver, John and maid, Christine. Crossing a threshold, Julie initiates a sexually-charged power game with Jean, which descends into a fight for survival as sex, power, money and race crash into a hot night in Hong Kong under British rule.
