Looks like another good season at the Young Vic and if you purchase tickets now for two shows, the second show is half price. Of the shows below, I’ve gotten tickets to The Changeling and After Miss Julie. Although Wild Swans is having its first ever stage version, the book is still fresh in my mind, so i’d rather see the others.
13 April – 13 May 2012
Through the eyes of one fiercely courageous family, Wild Swans takes us on a journey through China at the heart of the 20th century. Jung Chang’s astonishing human story is the best-selling non-fiction book in British publishing history.
26 January – 18 February 2012
One of the most powerful tragedies ever written, the changeling is a gripping and darkly comic tale of how love and sex drive us mad.
AFTER MISS JULIE
15 March – 7 April 2012
England, July 1945. The Labour Party’s landslide election triumph. Victory in the class struggle. Celebrations in every street.
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.
This passionate tragedy was adapted by Patrick Marber from Strindberg’s Miss Julie. Marber is best known for his string of acclaimed plays including Dealer’s Choice, Don Juan in Soho and Closer, and his BAFTA-winning films Notes on a Scandal and Closer.
