Book Description

Frank McGuinness presents scintillating new versions of two of August Strindbergs plays -- one a major work, the other less well known. "Miss Julie" is Strindbergs examination of power, sex, and class, set on a midsummers eve in a noblemans house and focusing on the shifting relationship between Miss Julie, the daughter of the house, and Jean, her fathers manservant. "The Stronger" is a short play that explores the complex range of emotions felt by Madame X when she encounters Mademoiselle Y, her husbands former mistress, at a fashionable cafe. Calling Mademoiselle Y worn out and evil, Madame X says that the triumph of her marriage proves she is the stronger of the two -- even though these words ring hollow, as she attempts to deceive only herself.Frank McGuinness presents scintillating new versions of two of August Strindbergs plays -- one a major work, the other less well known.
