Shakespeare may be well known for his tales about forbidden love, but he wasn't the only playwright to tackle the subject. Grey Noise Theatre Company has adapted August Strindberg's relationship drama "Maid Julie" into a chilling tale about reconciling romance against class differences.
Set in the heat of one summer in the thirteenth century, the play follows Julia, the free-spirited daughter of the lord of the manor, as she finds love during a rowdy party. The only problem is that her would-be beau is a lowly servant and is already engaged to the cook. This sets off a battle of wits that leads to an unsettling twist.
Grey Noise Theatre will present "Maid Julie" at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue) Wednesday, January 24, through Saturday, January 27, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, January 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $7 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at muccc.org.
