Was Sonia Brownell the inspiration for the character of Julia in 1984? What happened to her before and after she met and married George Orwell? Was she a gold digger or a tragic figure?
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Wednesday 27 September 2017, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to Julian Clary, his co-star and director of Le Grand Mort, the new play written especially for him about to receive its world premiere in a strictly limited season at Trafalgar Studios 2. Got any questions?
The plays may have been written 420-odd years apart, but I was really struck by how many parallels there were between the discussion I hosted last week, to the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company at Trafalgar Studios, and the one I hosted last night, to Christopher Marlowe‘s 16th-century classic Edward II.
