Natalie Abrahami, co-artistic director of The Gate, directs Patrick Marber’s passionate tragedy.
In July 1945 Miss Julie descends into the servants’ kitchen of her father’s country mansion in search of the chauffeur John. Over one long midsummer’s night, Miss Julie’s world is turned head over heels.
Patrick Marber adapted After Miss Julie from Strindberg’s Miss Julie initially for BBC 2. The first stage version opened at the Donmar in 2003 and was performed by Helen Baxendale, Richard Coyle and Kelly Reilly. Sienna Miller recently played Miss Julie on Broadway.
After Miss Julie is the pilot for a new series at the Young Vic called Classics for a New Climate. Throughout the creative process the team will investigate and experiment with approaches to making theatre while taking as little electricity off the national grid as possible.
After Miss Julie will be directed by Natalie Abrahami and designed by Patrick Burnier.
