AFTER MISS JULIE
Performed 19 - 28 April 2006
at Hagateatern at in Gothenburg
After Miss Julie is a new ‘version’ (and not a translation) of August Strindberg’s world classic Miss Julie (Fröken Julie). It is written by one of Britain's best-known contemporary playwrights Patrick Marber (Closer, Dealer’s Choice).
After Miss Julie relocates Miss Julie to an English country house in July 1945.
The celebrations for the Labour Party's election victory are in full swing. Freed from the mantle of the Second World War, Britain is celebrating and change is in the air for the wealthy Miss Julie, her father's chauffeur, John, and Christine, the cook.
As the drink flows and the music plays, a passionate midsummer night turns to tragedy, as Miss Julie and John test the limits of their new freedom.
Patrick Marber pays homage to Strindberg's original, bringing with it his trademark wit and sharp dialogue.
