PAC presents National Theatre of London’s “Julie”

The Highlands Performing Arts Center will present the National Theatre of London’s production of Julie, Live via Satellite, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 3. An adaptation of August Strindberg’s classic play Miss Julie which was written in 1882. This new version, written by Polly Stenham (That Face), remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new  setting of contemporary London. Wild and newly single, Julie throws herself a late night birthday party. Meanwhile in the kitchen Jean and Kristina cleanup as the celebration heaves  around them. Crossing this threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean –which rapidly descends into a savage fight for escape and ultimately survival.  Staring Vanessa Kirby, who recently won a BAFTA Award for best supporting actress for playing Princess Margaret in The Crown; also seen in Mission Impossible 6: Fallout as the White Widow, released July 2018.  This production contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and strobe lighting.  Tickets are available online: highlandspac.org, at the door or by calling 828-526-9047.  Highlands Performing Arts Center, 507 Chestnut Street, Highlands N.C.
