After Miss Julie

Set in 1945 in an English country house, on the eve of Labour’s landslide victory at the end of the Second World War, this compelling and erotic psychological thriller is inspired by Strindberg’s 1888 masterpiece.

During a summer ball, the beautiful daughter of the peer who owns the house, wanders into the servant’s quarters. As she flirts with her father’s handsome chauffeur, indifferent to the presence of his fiancée, what begins as game-playing ignites into passion with devastating consequences.

Helen George plays Miss Julie alongside Richard Flood as John and Amy Cudden in the role of Christine.

Well-known for her role as Trixie Franklin in Call the Midwife, Helen recently received huge praise for her stunning performances on Strictly Come Dancing.  Her stage credits include: the leading role of Sharpay Evans in the stage adaption of High School Musical; Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman in White and Love Never Dies (Adelphi Theatre).

Richard’s recent theatre credits include: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Gate Theatre, Dublin) and The Rubenstein Kiss (Soho Theatre Studio) while TV appearances include Red Rock, Crossing Lines (seasons 1 & 2) and Killing Kennedy.

Amy’s theatre credits include: Tonight at 8.30 (The Nuffield Theatre) and One Man 2 Guvnors (West End), while TV includes Holby City, Doctor Who and Vera.

Patrick Marber‘s plays include Dealer’s Choice, which won the 1995 Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, and the phenomenal international hit, Closer, which won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, the Critics' Circle and Olivier Awards for Best New Play and was made into a BAFTA Award-winning film in 2004.
