What Is the Story of After Miss Julie?
Adapted from playwright August Strindberg's 1880s classic Miss Julie, Patrick Marber’s After Miss Julie unfolds the torrid events that tear apart one aristocrat and two of her servants in 1940s Britain. On the eve of the Labour Party's historic win in 1945, the workers of an affluent man's country estate celebrate until dawn. Dancing and drinking alongside the hired help is the master's daughter, Miss Julie, who ia as volatile as she is beautiful. When Julie locks in on her father's chauffeur, John, a sexual game is set in motion right under the nose of the estate’s cook Christine, John's dutiful fiancée. As the dust settles, sex and lies reveal manipulations so damning the lives of all three will never be the same.
