Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).

Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.

However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.

The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).

Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details


1968, New York.

Andy Warhol's muse and his would-be assassin collide in this unconventional dark comedy about fame, failure, and feminism.

“Writing that sears and burns” (The Guardian) meets live music and super-8 film in a cabaret set up for an evening of intimate entertainment.

Nico, The Velvet Underground's glamorous front woman, is waiting to shoot Andy Warhol's latest movie, when her room is invaded by Valerie Solanas, writer of the radical feminist SCUM Manifesto.

Despite their contrasting personalities, they have one thing in common: they give precisely zero fucks.

Valerie wants the celebrity's help to spread her message of female revolution - but Nico craves only drugs, to insulate her from her stalled career and traumatic past.

A darkly comic battle begins.

Can these two iron-willed opponents become allies and change their futures?

As humourous as they are uncompromising, the pair's views on men, music, fame and feminism are outrageous and deadpan.

The time seems ripe for this reimagining of two female pop culture icons at the epicenter of 60s cool, battling for control of their own destinies.

With women's ownership of their stories and bodies still firmly on the news agenda, Femme Fatale draws parallels between 1960s feminism and today.
