After Miss Julie is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
After Miss Julie transposes August Strindberg's 1888 play about sex and class to an English country house on the eve of Labour's historic landslide in 1945.
Mark Brokaw (Direction)
Patrick Marber (Playwright)
August Strindberg (Original Playwright)
Summary This is Patrick Marber's version of the Strindberg classic Miss Julie, now set in 1945, just as the war has ended and the Labour Party has achieved a major political victory. With this backdrop, the privileged Miss Julie finds herself attracted to John, a servant in her household who also happens to be engaged.
Our Recommendation English writer Patrick Marber has "updated" Swedish playwright Strindberg's 1888 drama about power, sex, and class to make it relevant to a turning point in the British class system. The pscyho-sexual power struggle between privileged but frustrated Miss Julie and her servant John (who is smart and proud, but class conscious to the core) is all the more interesting when played out against the political change that is meant to sound the death knell of the old class system that these two are so hampered by. Jonny Lee Miller and Sienna Miller play their roles well, and Marin Ireland, as John's fellow servant and intended bride, is excellent as always.
