Queen of Basel


It's Art Basel, Miami's weeklong party for the rich and famous, where socialite darling Julie reigns over the blowout her real-estate mogul father is throwing at his South Beach hotel. But when her fiancé dumps her in front of the crowd, Julie hides from her humiliation—and her father—in the hotel’s barely used storage kitchen. Her companions are Christine, a cocktail waitress who recently fled war-torn Venezuela, and Christine’s fiancé John, an Uber driver from the Miami slums. This explosive elixir of power, class, and immigration status is a bold and contemporary take on Strindberg’s Miss Julie by vibrant rising voice Hilary Bettis (The Americans).
