Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new version of a world classic by one of Britain's best-known contemporary playwrights

After Miss Julie relocates August Strindberg's Miss Julie (1888) to an English country house in July 1945. In this radical re-imagining of theatre's first "naturalistic tragedy" the events of Strindberg's original are transposed to the night of the British Labour Party's "landslide" election victory.

After Miss Julie, written and directed by Patrick Marber, was screened by BBC2 in November 1995 as part of the Performance season.

Synopsis:

July 1945. A country house in England. Celebrations for the British Labour Party's election victory are in full swing.

The lady of the house, Miss Julie, descends into the servants' kitchen to seek out John, her father's chaffeur. A passionate midsummer night turns to tragedy as they test the limits of their new freedom.

Marber's After Miss Julie, a version of Strindberg's Miss Julie, received its world stage premiere at the Donmar Warehouse, London in November 2003.
