Finborough Theatre & Park Theatre


Role: Thérèse Raquin

Dir: Nona Shepphard

"The success of this show however, ultimately rests upon the slender and adulterous (though only in character, of course) shoulders of Julie Atherton as Thérèse. On stage for virtually the entire show, Atherton is silent for the first fourty-five minutes, before releasing her pent up desire for Laurent in the passionate I Breathe You In, sung as the two lovers consummate their lust. In the final act, her contribution to the duet If I Had Known are spine tingling."
