Theatre On A Sunday



What fun
Theatre on a Sunday afternoon!!!
The Storyhouse in Chester's own production of Miss Julie was an interesting choice for what I suspect is an experimental foray into Sunday productions and I think my Sister enjoyed this adaptation of August Strindberg's 1888 play as much as I did .
This production has been moved from the original Victorian Swedish setting  to 1940s Hong Kong
Where Miss Julie, a brittle and somewhat lost colonial daughter plays a dangerous flirting game with her father's Chinese chauffeur as his fiancé, the family cook and nanny, looks on.

The original play has a great deal to say about rape, mental health and class. And this Amy Ng's version adds race, English colonism into the sexual mix.

Sundays can be depressing days and my sister described them as having that Sunday night before school feeling! 

It was nice to do something different

    2. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/

  4. I've just had a look at the wikipedia article on this play - whoa - rather heavy material. I take it the performance you saw was well done?

    How interesting and definitely good to be out with your sister.

    I always did my homework on Friday after school so Sunday was less of a downer with school the next day.

    Hugs!

  9. I rather think I saw this Strindberg in the far distant past but can't remember where. Agree about Sundays when one lives alone - I have a permanent lunch date with three friends which makes Sunday more bearable - I find Saturday worst of all.

  11. I've always thought the same about Sundays. There is a sadness there as the afternoon passes by. Less so now that I'm in my fifties and like my job okay, but it's there. Sounds like this was a nice way to spend the day with someone you love.

  13. One of the great things about retirement: You never again have that Sunday night before school (or work) feeling.

  14. It's one of those plays that's passed me by. Don't know why. I'm only familiar with his 'The Father' but I'd like to see this also.
    And matinee performances used to be my staple diet when a regular theatre-goer.

  17. I remember seeing this play and becoming quite moved - jarred - by it. It must have been shocking in its day for a woman of class to run off with a servant. Today's folks probably cannot relate.
