Overview

1987 Hollywood blockbuster Fatal Attraction returns in a new stage adaptation by original screenwriter James Dearden. Directed by Trevor Nunn (Cats, Les Miserables), Fatal Attraction is the famous electrifying story of obsession and revenge that thrilled audiences when it came out as a film. Originally starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, this cult psychological thriller opens at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket for a limited season.

Fatal Attraction explores how a chance encounter quickly becomes a living nightmare for Dan Gallagher, a successful New York lawyer. After spending a lone weekend with the gorgeous Alex Forrest, Dan assumes that he can just walk away and return to his loving wife Beth. Little does he realise that Alex is a dangerous woman who simply refuses to be pushed aside. Soon, Alex begins to pursue Dan and his family with terrifying consequences.

Mark Bazeley (The Body Farm) stars as Dan Gallagher, alongside Kristin Davis (Sex and the City) as Beth Gallagher and Natascha McElhone (Californication) as Alex Forrest. When the film originally premiered in 1987, starring Douglas, Close and Anne Archer, audiences were gripped by the horrifying, charged relationships, which since made Fatal Attraction a cult classic.

Adapted for the stage by the film’s original screenwriter, Fatal Attraction is directed by the legendary Trevor Nunn, with design by Rob Jones, lighting design by Paul Pyant and sound design by Paul Groothuis. In a world premiere at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Fatal Attraction returns to thrill audiences. Don’t miss out!
