Production Files documenting the 2009 production of Patrick Marber's After Miss Julie at the American Airlines Theatre.  Directed by Mark Brokaw, with set design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Michael Krass, lighting design by Mark McCullough, original music and sound design by David Van Tiegham, and wig design by Paul Huntley.

The production starred Sienna Miller as Miss Julie, Jonny Lee Miller as John, and Marin Ireland as Christine.  Ryan McCarthy and Lisa Velten Smith were understudies, with Paul O'Brien, Sandra Shipley and Daniel Stewart billed as "Additional voices".

This production does not appear to have been nominated for any awards.
"This new version of August Strindberg's drama about class and sex transposes Miss Julie to the English country side on the eve of the Labour Party's landslide victory in the summer of 1945.  Young Miss Julie crosses a dangerous line when she engages in a forbidden flirtation with her father's handsome chauffeur, John.  Over the course of one passionate and unforgettable night, their steamy affair escalates into a high-stakes power struggle that takes a shocking turn." (Roundabout)
