The Guardian - The Guide - - Dance -

The Jermyn Street Theatre follows the world pre­miere of Howard Bren­ton’s The Blind­ing Light – con­cern­ing Au­gust Strind­berg’s “in­ferno” pe­riod, when he be­came ob­sessed with alchemy and the oc­cult – with a new adap­ta­tion by Bren­ton of the Swedish drama­tist’s clas­sic, Miss Julie. This tale of a mid­sum­mer night’s coun­try-house tryst be­tween a rich young woman and her fa­ther’s manser­vant has of­ten been adapted, no­tably in Pa­trick Mar­ber’s Af­ter Miss Julie. Tom Lit­tler di­rects a cast com­pris­ing Char­lotte Ham­blin, James Sheldon and Iz­abella Ur­banow­icz in a pro­duc­tion first seen at Keswick’s Theatre By the Lake. MC

Jermyn Street Theatre, SW1, Tue to 2 Dec
