Socialite plays dangerous game in ‘Miss Julie’ at Rep

The “steamy” and “erotic” August Strindberg drama “Miss Julie,” written in 1888, will be presented by Stone Soup Theatre Company at the North Coast Repertory Theater at 7:30 p.m. May 3, 4 and 5.

The production is being staged as a companion piece to the North Coast Rep’s most recent production of Henrik Ibsen’s “Ghosts,” another 19th century tale of sexual intrigue.

“The timing is just perfect,” said Stone Soup’s Rebecca Johannsen, who will produce and star in the production. It is directed by Lisa Berger and Carrie Klewin, who are using a translation of the play by noted scholar Anne Charlotte Hanes Harvey. Also in the cast are Jason Maddy and Erika Beth Phillips. The story, according to Johannsen, “deals with class, love/lust, and the battle of the sexes on a midsummer night in 1874 on the estate of a count in Sweden.”

Said David Ellenstein, artistic director of North Coast Rep: “We are excited to present Stone Soup Theatre’s production of Strindberg’s dramatic and passionate masterpiece. We welcome the opportunity to share our stage and partner with other theatre artists in the San Diego community. Collaborations like this help grow audiences and enliven the theatre environment for artists and theatergoers alike.”

Tickets are $25 at www.northcoastrep.org or (858) 481-1055. The theater is at 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach.
