One midsummer’s eve, Julie, an upper class woman, and Jean, a valet at her father’s estate, struggle with misguided passion for each other and their own romanticized ideas of escape. Gorilla Theater Productions presents Miss Julie, by August Strindberg, a play about the tensions of class, desire, and the hunger for power.

Through 8/11  $7-10, 8pm (4pm on Sundays). Reservations recommended. The Director’s Studio, 1726 Allied Ln., Suite 2B, McIntire Plaza. 547-7986.
