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. This provocative new production revels in the danger of fatal, decadent desires, harnessing the raw power and precariousness of sexuality to unmask the LULU enigma.
