Limited Seating

By August Strindberg

On Midsummer’s Eve, Miss Julie, a young noblewoman, enters into an illicit affair with her father’s valet, Jean. Worldly and cultured, Jean by turns spurns and encourages Miss Julie’s flirtation, eventually initiating a relationship of disastrous consequences. Written in 1888, Strindberg’s masterful exploration of sex, class and power asks who in the battle of the sexes is really the servant and who the master.

Betrayal

Feb. 17-28, 2016

Limited Seating

By Harold Pinter
Directed by Bruce Cromer

For seven years, Emma and Jerry engage in a passionate love affair, deceiving their spouses, each other and, at times, even themselves. It is ultimately revealed that Emma’s husband, Robert, has known about the affair for years without ever saying a word. Was this his betrayal, or his revenge? As memory reels backward toward the moment the affair started, the lies tangle into a web of deception, and betrayal begets betrayal. One of the 20th century’s most influential dramatists, Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter innovatively explores the complexities of love, guilt and duplicity in this Olivier Award-winning classic.

Starring

  • Eric Minion as Robert
  • Mac Blais as Jerry
  • Maya Farhat as Emma
  • Micah Price as Waiter
