FOUL PLAY presented the WORLD PREMIER of Julie by award-winning playwright Holly Brindley.

Exploring female power and sexuality, this bold new work reimagined August Strindberg’s 1888 play Miss Julie into present day Australia. It’s 2AM and as her 18th birthday party winds down, Julie’s intimate relationships are tested until they are irrevocably altered.

What the Critics said

''Holly Brindley . . . has written the best new version of Miss Julie I have seen or read . . . Foul Play
is a company that deserves to do well and be supported. It has produced an excellent piece of professional theatre that matches and surpasses its well-funded peers.''

– Stage Whispers - Sally Puntnam


"Director Yasmin Gurreeboo’s staging of Holly Brindley’s script is vivacious and electric from the word ‘go’ . . .  The four performers have an individually striking and powerful presence on stage, while also displaying a keen chemistry with each other.''
– Adelaide Theatre Guide, Andrew
