Interracial sex on an 1888 Louisiana plantation
The August Strindberg Rep transports Miss Julie to an antebellum Louisiana plantation. The landowner's daughter Julie has just broken off her engagement. It's Mardi Gras; she and the master's black butler John dance and drink. They hide in his room while the roughneck field hands vandalize the house in a never-before performed ballet sequence devised by Strindberg!
Julie and John have had sex and plan to flee for New Orleans, take a steamer and open a hotel in Jamaica. She steals her father's cash box to pay for the trip, but their plan is thwarted when John's fiancee Christine the cook announces that she will tell the stable boy on her way to church not to let any horses out until the Master is back!
Starring Ivette Dumeng as Julie, Reginald L. Wilson* as John, and Eboni Flowers* as Christine; Allison MacDonald and Joshua Lamar dance Ja' Malik's choreography.
Adapted by Edgar Chisholm, designed by Miriam Crowe, Marisa Ferrara, Donna Miskend and Andy Evan Cohen, translated and directed by Robert Greer.
