“Absolutely superb! How 3 people can keep you so transfixed is beyond me!” – Modish Male
Helen George best known for her role as Trixie Franklin the glamorous Sister in BBC’s Call The Midwife plays the lead role of Miss Julie, a 20 something rich girl living in her fathers large English Country House who has a keen interest in her fathers chauffeur.
The action happens in the servants kitchen during a summer ball, when harmless flirting between Miss Julie & John the chauffeur soon ignites into passion with devastating consequences.
I absolutely LOVED the play , the acting was absolutely superb! How 3 people can keep you so transfixed is beyond me! I loved George’s portrayal of Miss Julie, it’s not like anything I’ve seen her do before. Also I take my hat off to Richard Flood who plays John the chauffeur and Amy Cudden who plays Christine, the jealous girlfriend of John, who were both excellent!
The set for After Miss Julie was one of the best I have seen, a fully functioning 1940’s kitchen with 2 staircases and many props. I really liked the way the upstairs summer party was shown via projection onto the theatre walls where you saw a glimpse of Helen George’s Strictly Come Dancing talents.
I urge you to see this before it’s too late! If you have already, let me know what you thought! Next week I’m off to see Rehearsal for Murder at the Theatre Royal so look out for the review!
