by August Strindberg

A new adaptation of Strindberg’s thrilling psychological drama, newly politically-charged in Amy Ng’s adaptation for Storyhouse.

Chinese New Year, 1930s Hong Kong. Julie is the daughter of the island’s British Governor. With her father away for the weekend, Julie comes downstairs to join the servants as they party, initiating a sexually-charged power game with her father’s butler.

What starts as a game descends into a fight for survival as sex, power, money and race collide on a hot night in the Pearl River Delta.
