After MISS JULIE

November 14-30th, 2013

Presented by The Red One Theatre Collective & The Storefront Theatre, a Version of Strindberg's Miss Julie by Patrick Marber

England, July 1945. The Labour Party sweeps to a landslide election victory. Celebrations flood into the streets. Miss Julie descends into the servants' kitchen of her father's country estate seeking John, the chauffeur. Over one tragic summer's night, Julie and John take their passionate entanglement to the edge.

In this provocative adaptation, Marber amps up the power play between Julie, John, and his fiancée Christine to a deliciously dangerous level.

PRESS

“Sex, anger and an unbreachable class structure are the red-hot themes of After Miss Julie, Patrick Marber's adaptation of Strindberg's classic about the tense relationship between a well-born woman and her father's servant. It's the most powerful and shocking version of the story I've seen.”

NNNNN (Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine)

“Claire Armstrong’s Julie is the image, visual and vocal, of ravaged English entitlement, temptress and tempted in one.”
