The hit 1987 movie Fatal Attraction is adapted for the stage and heading to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2014, giving fans of the original and newcomers alike an opportunity to visit this compelling world of blackmail and obsession. Penned by writer James Deardon (one of the writers of the original film) and directed by one of the most respected names in British theatre – Sir Trevor Nunn – this is likely to be a much-talked-about production in the West End show and one that will attract a great deal of audience members eager to pick up theatre tickets.
The original movie featured Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, among others, and they portrayed characters whose one weekend of passion leads to life-altering events. It was a huge hit at the time, not only with the public, who flocked to the cinema, but also with the critics and award-judges, ensuring that it was on the receiving end of Academy Award-nominations. As a result it has had a lasting effect on popular culture and has cemented its place in the spotlight so that this West End stage version cannot come fast enough.
The story follows the characters of Dan Gallagher and Alex Forrest, the former being a man with a good job and a family. The two meet one another and engage on a weekend affair that soon threatens everything as Forrest refuses to let go. What began as something Gallagher thought he could put behind him becomes something horrifying, with blackmail, obsession and more.
Sir Trevor Nunn, directing, is one of the biggest names in the West End theatre scene and previously presented a range of shows at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, from Flare Path to The Lion In Winter. Prior to that he was the recipient of Laurence Olivier Awards for Summerfolk at the National Theatre and The Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickleby at the Aldwych Theatre.
Fatal Attraction is at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Tuesday 25th March 2014 (previews from Saturday 8th March 2014).
