Kym Marsh and Oliver Farnworth

Put your rabbits away—a stage adaptation of classic movie thriller Fatal Attraction is coming to Manchester Opera House (February 21-26).

Kym Marsh is joined by fellow Coronation Street actor Oliver Farnworth as her lover Dan Gallagher in the steamy story of infidelity and obsession.

Susie Amy, from Footballers’ Wives, is his wife, Beth.

The play is from the producers of tours of Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight and Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train.

Fatal Attraction is written by James Dearden, who based the stage play on his Oscar-nominated screenplay, which in turn was adapted from his 1980 short film, Diversion.

Fatal Attraction was one of 1987’s highest grossing box office releases, securing six major Oscar nominations.
