McGuiness Approaches Strindberg With A Light Hand 4 Feb. 2014
By William M. Razavi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The version of Miss Julie here hews very close to Strindberg's original and only occasionally does the language give off sparkles of a more Irish idiom. (Enough to remind you who did this version, not so much as to intrude upon the nature of the original.)
The Stronger, on the other hand, never seemed to be as interesting a play as it does in this version.
