Drama, Romance, and a lusty battle of control were all showcased at the Minot State theatrical adaptation of "Miss Julie".
The original play was written in by August Strinberg in the 1880's, and though the original timing will remain constant,
father and daughter directing duo Aili Smith and Conrad Davidson chose to give their version some modern twists.
Instead of century old dialogue actors delivered their lines in the language we use today.
The cast hoped this method would convey the flirtation, manipulation and betrayal of today's mankind.
(Krys Zorbaugh, Stage Manager) "I think part of it is it's a very intimate play, and the setting of it, being in the black box is a very intimate setting. And, I think the need for audience participation on the level brings everybody so close to what's really happening on the stage. There is no angle that's going to be missed."
