Live filming techniques are used, to track the life-changing events through Kristin's eyes, so it would be astonishing to all but the demented, (and Epi, apparently), if the "moves" of the real-time film were to diverge from those of the theatrical performance.
Miss Julie is a play, not a novel.

Barking mad, but entertaining and very cleverly done.
I think the other show Lynette was thinking of was The Waves
Did anyone else see "Say it with Flowers" at Hampstead Downstairs? Also demented but excellent. Promenade performance with three sets so they could only fit 20 audience members in at a time.

...some trace of her adapted from Dostoevsky's novel, The Idiot. With Ben Whishaw.

Whoever said that they copy a film can't have been watching very closely, it's pretty obvious how it's done.
On 'Say It With Flowers' it was a perfect little miniature, the last section being hilarious, the trundling in and out of the trolley and Louis XV and the litle jig still making me giggle when I think about it. I hadn't put Stein as the precursor to Pinter/Beckett/Kane and so on but this made a very good case for it.
It is to British theatre's credit than we can come up with directors like Mitchell, it is to our shame that she is most at home on the continent instead.

Well, she's had 3 shows on in London in the last couple of months, the two that were reviewed were very well received. Although they both originated abroad so you do have a point!
