Wedekind's once-banned play follows the fortunes and tragedy of a husband-hopping femme fatale. Read More >

Initially banned for its perceived immorality, Lulu follows the fortunes and ultimate tragedy of a young woman, a femme-fatale, who skips from one husband to the next leaving a trail of broken hearts and broken bodies in her wake.

Playwright Frank Wedekind drew inspiration from circus and variety to create a play that would entertain, thrill and shock.

This provocative new production, adapted from the original by Anna Ledwich,  revels in the danger of fatal, decadent desires, harnessing the raw power and precariousness of sexuality to unmask the Lulu enigma.
