Miss Julie is returning to Theatre by the Lake and Jermyn Street Theatre in spring 2019, in a revival of the original production, again starring Charlotte Hamblin and James Sheldon. It will play in repertory with Howard Brenton’s new version of Strindberg’s Creditors.
Tom directed the world premiere of Howard Brenton’s new version of August Strindberg’s masterpiece, in a coproduction between Theatre by the Lake and Jermyn Street Theatre. It received four OffWestEnd Award Nominations including Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Set Design. It sold out every ticket at Jermyn Street Theatre.
Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules.
When Julie finds herself alone on her father’s estate, she throws caution to the wind and gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. A flirtatious game descends into a savage fight for survival.
Miss Julie is a ground-breaking masterpiece that still provokes and shocks audiences today.
Award-winning playwright Howard Brenton brings Strindberg’s genius to life in this brilliant new adaptation.
