“Don’t you know its dangerous to play with fire?”

Midsummer night in an old manor house in the North East. For one night only servants and masters are equal, and drink and dance together into the small hours. With the Lord away, his daughter, Miss Julie, strays into the servants quarters in search of his Valet, John. As night draws in, their mutual attraction drives them together with fatal consequences…

This production played in the North East in March/ April 2019 at the Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, Hexham, the Gala Theatre, Durham, the Exchange, North Shields and the Majestic in Darlington. It then transferred to Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester in June 2019.
