Graduate Eric Kofi Abrefa is playing Jean in the National Theatre’s new adaptation of Miss Julie, directed by Polly Stenham.

Julie, also featuring The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby, and 2014 RWCMD graduate Thalissa Teixeira,  who both appear with Eric in the promotional video below, is an updated version of Strindberg’s play which promises to remain shocking and fiercely relevant.


The production is designed by graduate and Fellow, Tom Scutt, and is currently in preview, with press night on 7th June.

Television performances include Channel 4’s Humans, Fox UK’s Deep State, ITV’s Harlots and Richard Eyre’s King Lear.
