Review

"'Miss Julie has never raged quite so fiercely as she does in this searing and fearless new version - savage and unbound. Brilliant.' starstarstarstarstar The Guardian 'The smash hit of the Fringe.' starstarstarstarstar The Telegraph 'Gets you watching as if your life depended on it, and leaves you heart-wrecked" starstarstarstarstar Sunday Times 'Eroticism and anger intertwine devastatingly in this post-apartheid overhaul of a controversial classic' starstarstarstarstar Time Out 'The temperature never stops rising in Yael Farber's Mies Julie, a play for which "scorcher" is way too mild a description - inspired' Ben Brantley, New York Times 'Farber makes new, frightening sense of the play's thematic power battles, turning Julie and John's relationship into a visceral fight for the ancestral home rights' Metro"

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLAY (and the book) to anyone who is prepared to be jarred, jolted and challenged about the themes of identity, privilege and connection.

I guess sooner or later someone associated with the "New South Africa" had to write this work. Yeal Farber, an ex-pat SA resident in Vancouver, drew the lucky straw and presents a pimped-up NSA version of the original play.

Spiced up with three arguably non-consensual sex scenes the reader and audience are exposed to an avalanche of visual and verbal cliches, tropes, memes and allegories that...in stage form...runs to about 90 minutes. Hipster audiences in SA and on the fringe theater circuit abroad are driven to wild ecstasy as they spot the "deep and meaningfuls" and exclaim at the play's "relevance" to 20 years of post-apartheid angst. It's all part of the game, right?

As a script, it's easy to imagine the work as the winner of a challenge-task assigned to competing syndicates of third-year Arts students at Wits. And deservedly so. For that's about the level at which it sits.

Try this: take out the sex scenes and experience how it instantly feels like cardboard left out the rain.

Athol Fugard can rest easy. MJ presents no threat to his crown.
