BANGKOK — An ‘80s classic play on affairs and Darwinism by a prolific Swedish playwright will be performed by Indian actors in Bangkok starting Thursday.
Having been translated into many languages and having featured in several productions worldwide, August Strindberg’s classic “Miss Julie” will be performed in Thailand by Culture Collective Studio, Bangkok’s multicultural and English speaking theater.
“Miss Julie” tells the story of a rich young woman who has an affair with a senior servant already betrothed to a household cook. The play has been regarded by literary critics as the most successful example of a naturalistic play, combining a realistic and simple setting, performance and story conflict revolving around the theme of Darwinian understanding.
The Bangkok production will be performed in English by an all-indian cast: Aarti Kapoor, Vineet Kumar and Prashanthi Subramaniam.
Tickets are 1,000 baht and can be purchased online.
The play launches at 7pm on Thursday. It will start at 8pm on Friday through Sunday, 7pm on June 29 and 8pm June 30 through July 2. It’s suggested not to be late.
It performance venue is the Culture Collective Studio on the third floor of the Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok on Charoenkrung Soi 70. It can be reached by taxi or motorbike taxi from BTS Saphan Taksin.
