Patrick Marber: Versions : After Miss Julie; Three Days in the Country; Hedda Gabler; Trelawny of the 'Wells'; The Beaux Strategem Paperback / softback
After Miss Julie'Patrick Marber's sharp reworking of Strindberg's classic has lost none of its edge.
It's a hurtling, brutal play, a psychosexual nightmare of gender and class division, electrified by rage, fear, contempt and self-loathing.' The TimesTrelawny of the 'Wells' 'Brilliantly but modestly updated and tweaked by Patrick Marber.
All praise to him for this version.' Sunday TimesThe Beaux' Stratagem 'Marber's combination of overt and dry humour, and his refusal to stop being serious even during his comedy, pay off excellently here.' Financial TimesThree Days in the Country'Patrick Marber, who also directs, must take a bow.
For it is an evening where the wit of the dialogue captivates. And, as in an elegant dance, the play keeps turning on its own heel, moving between comedy and anguish, reminding us of love as an impractical joke.' ObserverHedda Gabler'It makes you shiver, this beautiful, brittle Ibsen ice sculpture.' The Times
