Dan Gallagher has it good; he is a successful business attorney, happily married, and has a beautiful daughter. But one weekend, while his family is away, Dan ruins it all for a lustful one night stand. At least that's what he thinks it is going to be. His mistress, Alex, has other ideas. She refuses to let it end, and stalks Dan everywhere he goes. It is a Fatal Attraction. This psychological thriller film from 1987 was directed by Adrian Lyne, and starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close (who has a knack for playing crazed women). Upon release it became the highest-grossing film of the year and was nominated for six academy awards.
Now for the first time, this timeless thriller has been re-interprted for the stage. Adapted by the original screenwriter, James Dearden, and directed by Trevor Nunn, Fatal Attraction will appear at the Theatre Royal Haymarket between the 8th March - 21st June. Tickets are £10 - £65, but if you are very determined and don't mind getting up at the crack of dawn, you could be in with a chance of a great deal. There are a limited number of stall seats that you can buy on the day for £15, but you'll have to book in person, which means getting there early.
