It's not coming to Canada for a bit yet - and making stops at the Cultch in Vancouver and at World Stage in Toronto when it does - but it is never too early to get excited about the arrival of the world acclaimed South African adaptation, Mies Julie. It's especially not difficult to be thrilled when you start to see photos like this masterpiece by Murdoch MacLeod (featuring Bongile Mantsai and Hilda Cronje). It's so raw it's almost mystical and MacLeod recognizes that with the wondrous addition of the cloud behind the love-haters. That cheap kitchen table also lends the piece a certain tawdriness that marks Strindberg's original play as well. Beauty.
