The Cold Light of Day
Inspired by Augustus Strindberg's "Miss Julie"
Written by Tony Rees

Julie is the daughter of Lord Hampton - who feels sure that the forthcoming General Election of 1997 will be one of life's crowning achievement when he is voted an MP. Usually, Julie accompanies her father to London - Hello magazine says "they are a handsome pair” … but on this night of the election she decides to stay at the country campaign office with the PRs and secretaries as they put together a "welcome home the winner" party for her father.

Drunk and flirtatious Julie makes a bee line for John - her father's chauffeur - who,
always the opportunist, leads her on.
Christine - John's fiancé and Julie's personal secretary - is used to his "girls" but is annoyed that this “affair” is too close to home. She had arranged the job for him after a series of failed "ventures”, which included cheap cars, wine and drugs.

Julie's seduction puts the three of them onto an emotional roller coaster
culminating in Julie's suicide.
