Review from Dennis Louie

The acting was wonderful and the setting could not have been better. What a wonderful opportunity to see a play set in a Manor House kitchen performed in the JJ Hill House kitchen. Be warned....the story is a tragedy. I enjoyed it very much and...continued

Description

Written by Patrick Marber (author of Closer), After Miss Julie is set entirely in the servants’ kitchen, and Gremlin Theatre presents this sexy, taut and terrifying work in the intimate, period setting of the kitchen of the James J. Hill House in St. Paul.

After Miss Julie transposes August Strindberg’s 1888 play about sex and class to an English country house on the eve of Labour’s historic 1945 victory over Churchill and the Conservatives. While celebrations break out among the lower classes in every street and pub, Miss Julie descends into the servants’ kitchen of her father’s country mansion in search of the chauffeur, John. Over one long midsummer’s night, Miss Julie’s world is turned head over heels.
