LULU

WORLD PREMIERE NEW DIRECTIONS 2010 The Gate Theatre and Headlong Theatre present LULU FRANK WEDEKIND ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY ANNA LEDWICH 10 June - 10 July 2010 Who are you? How far are you prepared to go? What are you prepared to become? 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. "This ongoing collaboration between the Gate and Headlong confirms both as invaluable agents of experiment and intelligent innovation" TIME OUT on New Directions 2009 Wedekind drew inspiration from circus and variety to create a play that would entertain, thrill and shock.
