Win Tickets to 'After Miss Julie' @ Everyman
Monday 7 - Saturday 12 February @ 8pm

London Classic Theatre returns to The Everyman Palace Theatre with Patrick Marber's "After Miss Julie" from February 7th to 12th next as the beginning of an Irish Tour. Under the expert direction of Michael Cabot, this is a play with seduction, passion and obsession.

 

The drama opens on a night in July 1945, in a country house near London. Celebrations for the Labour Party's landslide 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 chauffeur. As the night draws in, and flirtation turns to passion, the two lovers embark on a consuming and deadly dance of desire. Sex, class and ambition battle for centre stage as Patrick Marber relocates Strindberg's brutal, sensual, love story, to post-war England.

The Cast features Helen Barford, Andy Dowbiggin and Kathryn Ritchie in this production directed by Michael Cabot, designed by Kerry Bradley, with lighting by Peter Foster.

Marber's first play, "Dealer's Choice", opened at the National Theatre, London, in February 1995 and won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy. His other plays include "Howard Katz", "Don Juan in Soho" and "Closer", which also won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy as well as the Critics' Circle Theatre Award and Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play.

August Strindberg (1849-1912) was a pivotal figure in the development of modern drama and a passionate early advocate of both Naturalism and Expressionism. His works include "The Dance of Death," "A Dream Play" and "The Ghost Sonata." As one of the pioneers of the Modern European stage he gained notoriety both as an astute portrayer of character and an unrelenting critic of the social and sexual mores of his time.

In 2010 London Classic Theatre celebrated ten years on tour. Led by founder and Artistic Director Michael Cabot, the company produces challenging, accessible, drama and is a frequent visitor to the Everyman Palace Theatre with acclaimed productions last year of both "The Beauty Queen of Leenane" and "The Caretaker".
