The Buckland Theatre Company will launch as a full-scale producing company with an intimate production of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie at the Etcetera Theatre.
This new production to be shown at the theatre in Camden, will run for a limited season from the 24th February to the 19th March.
Directed by Gary Condes, featuring set and costumes designs by Carla Goodman as well as lighting and sound design by Joe Price, the production will take over the entire space at the Etcetera Theatre.
‘Tonight we are ordinary people trying to be happy.’
On Midsummer’s Eve, wishes are meant to come true. But, as Miss Julie becomes ever more deeply entangled with her father’s valet, dreams turn to disappointment – with tragic consequences. Strindberg’s masterly study of class, desire, and the ties that bind us caused a scandal when it was first performed, and remains searingly relevant today.
This latest production of Strindberg’s classic play will feature Laura Greenwood as Miss Julie, Charlie Dorfman as Jean and Danielle Henry as Kristin.
Founded by Charlie Dorfman, Buckland Theatre Company has run weekly readings since April 2015, covering classics by Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill and August Wilson to name a few.
Miss Julie is the company’s debut production in a season of classic and modern works to be announced later this year.
Laura Greenwood first came to public attention as the teenage lead in 2009 thriller Pinprick, and has since been seen in a huge variety of television roles, including Prime Suspect and Messiah. Meanwhile, Danielle Henry made her television debut in Emmerdale and graced the nation’s screens as Mandy Marquez in Doctors for two years, whileGary Condés has a wealth of experience as a professional actor and over the last 10 years has developed into a renowned acting coach.
Miss Julie will run at the etcetera theatre from the 24th February to the 19th March. To book tickets visit: http://www.etceteratheatre.com/.
