Summary
Patrick Marber's After Miss Julie is not a translation of Strindberg's classic Miss Julie but a version of it, moving the action from the original 19th-century Sweden to the England of 1945. Class suspicions and resentments, the erotic collusion of antagonists, the struggle against repressive social mores - all feature in this sharp, tense drama which combines Strindberg's original vision with Patrick Marber's own consummate skill in drawing believable and psychologically astute characters whose every word has point and deadly meaning.
