The NHB Drama Classics series presents the world's greatest plays in affordable, highly readable editions for students, actors and theatregoers. The hallmarks of the series are accessible introductions (focussing on the play's theatrical and historical background, together with an author biography, key dates and suggestions for further reading) and the complete text, uncluttered with footnotes. The translations, by leading experts in the field, are accurate and above all actable. The editions of English-language plays include a glossary of unusual words and phrases to aid understanding.
Strindberg's Miss Julie is perhaps his most famous play. Bored with her sheltered existence, Miss Julie attempts to seduce the footman, but gets far more than she bargained for. This Drama Classics edition is translated and introduced by Kenneth McLeish, and also includes the author's Preface to the play.
