Welcome

This website accompanies the book project Drama as Text and Performance: Strindberg’s and Bergman’s Miss Julie, published at Amsterdam University Press.

This bilingual English-Swedish study of August Strindberg’s renowned play Miss Julie (1888) provides a penetrating analysis of the author’s text and of Ingmar Bergman’s praised 1985 production. The book is a paradigmatic illustration of similarities and differences between text and performance. The Bergman part is highlighted by a number of black-and-white illustrations from the stage performance. The complete text is made available on this website (www.missjulie.eu), and where a great many stills and four clips of the play can be found too.
