William Razavi's JULIE to Play Performing Arts San Antonio, 6/13-28
The Southwest Association of Literary & Dramatic Artists presents Julie: a new version of August Strindberg's Miss Julie by William Razavi, directed by Emily Fitzgerald. The production runs June 13-15, 19-21, 26-28 at 8pm; June 22 at 2pm at Performing Arts San Antonio (PASA), 15705 San Pedro Ave, San Antonio, Texas, 78232.
An upstairs/downstairs love affair. A desire for debasement and advancement. Bullying, brutal, tender, wistful. All of these have been used to describe productions of August Strindberg's Miss Julie. Ours is a new version, exploring these same emotions and conflicts in a contemporary, local setting. The mad tryst between Julie, a rich kid bored with her privileged life and tragically abandoned by mother, father, and fiancé, and John, a Valley exile striving to attain his own small American dream, is fueled by those very desires for debasement and advancement, but also by Julie's fragile need to have a real moment of connection. John's lover and Julie's friend Christine is sacrificed on the fire of John and Julie's sexual collision, until she, too, sees an opportunity to achieve her own ends. In their desperate attempts to grasp a little of their own, the three are ultimately willing to destroy each other, even themselves, for a moment of true freedom.
The cast features Sarah Nixon as Julie; Miguel Di Costanzo as John; and Emily Lyssy as Christine.
