After Miss Julie

21st – 29th November 2014

The power of wealth – or the power of sex?

Step inside the downstairs world of a privileged country home and discover that all is not as it seems. Escalating sexual and class tensions end in tragedy for Miss Julie in Patrick Marber’s reworking of Strindberg’s classic.

After Miss Julie is not a translation of Miss Julie but a version of it, moving the action from the original nineteenth-century Sweden to the England of 1945 – specifically to 26th July, the day of the Labour Party’s landslide election victory. Miss Julie is the daughter of an aristocrat who, drunk after a party, flirts with her father’s chauffeur John and sets in train a series of events that lead to tragedy. Class suspicions and resentments, the erotic collusion of the antagonists, the struggle against repressive social mores — all feature in this sharp, tense drama which combines Strindberg’s original vision with Patrick Marber’s own consummate skill in drawing believable and psychologically astute characters whose every word has point and deadly meaning.
