One of Australia’s most exciting and innovative young directors, Kip Williams, brings the theatrical masterpiece Miss Julie to Melbourne Theatre Company, opening on Thursday 21 April at Southbank Theatre, The Sumner.
Miss Julie marks the MTC debut of Kip Williams who, as Sydney Theatre Company’s Resident Director, has received critical acclaim for his recent revivals of Macbeth and Suddenly Last Summer, for which he won the 2015 Helpmann Award for Best Director of a Play.
Director Kip Williams said, ‘Miss Julie is one of the canon’s great psychological thrillers. It drips with an intoxicating sexual tension and a dangerous power play. For generations, theatre makers have been drawn to it to reinvestigate questions of class, gender, and sexuality.’
Starring: Robin McLeavy (Hell on Wheels, Blinky Bill the Movie) Mark Leonard Winter (Birdland) and Zahra Newman (the Mountaintop).
