Natalie Dormer returns to Young Vic in After Miss Julie

By • West End
Game of Thrones and The Tudors star Natalie Dormer will play the title role in the Young Vic’s forthcoming revival of Patrick Marber’s After Miss Julie.

The production, which runs from 21 March to 14 April 2012 (previews from 15 March), marks a return to the Young Vic for Dormer following her performance in Luc Bondy’s revival of Sweet Nothings in 2010.

In After Miss Julie she’ll star opposite Kieran Bew as John, the object of Miss Julie’s affections, and Polly Frame as Christine.

Bew’s recent credits include Reasons to be Pretty and The Knot of the Heart at the Almeida, while Frame was recently seen in the National’s Earthquakes in London.

After Miss Julie, which is directed by Natalie Abrahami, has extended by a week and will now run until 14 April.

Marber’s 2003 play relocates Strindberg's tale about a footman who seduces a count's daughter on the night of a midsummer festival to an English country house in July 1945 on the night of the British Labour Party's election victory.

The new production is a pilot for a new series at the Young Vic called Classics for a New Climate. According to press material, “Throughout the creative process the team will investigate and experiment with approaches to making theatre while taking as little electricity off the national grid as possible.”
