Production Dates: April 8 – May 2, 2015
On an evening of holiday parties at investment bank HadleyMoore, Julie Harper – Director of Equity Sales – decides to forgo wine and cocktails with coworkers at a nearby club and opts to stay on the trading floor for chips and beer with the bank’s maintenance staff. Her desire to cut loose for a night leads her to Juan, a janitor for the firm. After some innocent flirting turns to something more serious, both Julie and Juan find themselves faced with a crisis of choice and consequence.
Ms. Julie, Asian Equities takes August Strindberg’s classic play and updates it for the 99% and the 1%, with the sexual politics and class warfare fully intact. What happens when you decide to see how the other half lives? And is it possible to still rise to the top when you’ve reached the very bottom?
Ms. Julie, Asian Equities was staged in a studio apartment converted into a theater. Featuring a fully-realized design and just 20 seats per night – experience one of the great classics of the theater, updated for today and presented in the most intimate of settings.
