Acclaimed director/playwright Yaël Farber has taken August Strindberg's naturalistic classic "Miss Julie" and transformed it into "Mies Julie", a tale set in the humid kitchen of a remote South African estate 18 years after the end of apartheid. Dynamics shift sharply -- and attractions ignite -- when a black farm laborer, his "master's" daughter and the woman who's raised them both come together on one feverish night. Fueled by strongly-felt passion and generation-deep resentment, their encounter spirals into violence. After hit productions in New York, London and elsewhere, "Mies Julie" arrives in Chicago at the Victory Gardens Zacek McVay Theater. [less-]
