Patrick Marber’s AFTER MISS JULIE is a fascinating exercise in reinventing a classic and if the production playing as part of the Sydney Fringe is an imperfect rendering, it is nevertheless a watchable evening for both a Strinbergian like myself or like my friend, someone without the preconceptions of the initiated. Presented in the close confines of The Sandstone Cottage in busy, noisy Spice Alley there is much to be said for being so near to the performers. SPea Productions have taken this proximity seriously in their preparations and there is considerable charm and attraction in the period features of the show.

You may not get the chance to see ARTHUR AND MARILYN. The creative team behind the show has ensured heavy bookings and much of the season is sold out but this is a show to watch out for. It would be very disappointing if a wider audience did not get the chance to see these truly delightful performances.
Arthur speaks to us directly in a slightly self-deprecating way, he knows who we have come to see and using his journal as aide-memoire, he will guide us through his relationship with the star. When we first meet her however, he has misread his diary and she corrects the remembrance. As she is passively drawn into his little illusion, it will become evident that the journal is unreliable and simply will not provide the solace he seeks.

Dinosaurus Productions presents the premiere of ARTHUR & MARILYN by Jasper Lee-Lindsay.
All these years later, everyone has their own version of Marilyn Monroe. But one man has claimed to have known her better than anyone else; her husband and famous playwright, Arthur Miller.
Arthur wants to share who Marilyn really was. But with the memories comes all the baggage, and Arthur may not be as in control of the story as he thought.
Jasper Lee-Lindsay’s debut play is an expansion of his award-winning short play of the same name, and takes a deeper look at the dispossession of identity, and how your story shapes you when you’re not the one telling it.
Contains coarse language and adult themes.
With Meg Hyeronimus and Alec Ebert
Director: Danen Young
Stage Manager: Emma Bradbury
Designer: Lyndal Tuckey
