August Strindberg’s naturalistic play Miss Julie (Miss Julia) was the premiere production of the Scandinavian Naturalistic Theatre. While initially censored for content, the play has since become one of the most successful naturalistic dramas written, and has been performed on stages around the world each year since its premiere in 1888. Miss Julie has also been adapted numerous times for film, most recently by Liv Ullman with Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell in the roles of Miss Julie and Jean.
