The Barbican is on a bit of a roll. First it brought us Cate Blanchett in Sydney Theatre Company's Gross und Klein, now, fresh from the Avignon Festival, comes Juliette Binoche as the heroine of Strindberg's tense domestic drama. Director Frederic Fisbach has given the 19th-century classic a contemporary setting with Mlle Julie, dressed in gold Lanvin sequins, playing out her doomed dalliance with her father's valet on a stark, bright white set. In French, with subtitles.
Barbican Theatre, London, 20 to 29 September (barbican.org.uk)
