Kiss of the Spider Woman at the Menier Chocolate Factory

Samuel Barnett (Netflix series Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, The History Boys) and Declan Bennett (Jesus Christ Superstar) star in a new adaptation of Manuel Puig’s Kiss of the Spider Woman.

Adapted by José Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Allan Baker, this electrifying story is directed by Laurie Sansom

Kiss of the Spider Woman runs from 8 March 2018 until 5 May 2018 at the Menier Chocolate Factory.


Set in a Buenos Aires prison, Kiss of the Spider Woman is a provocative tale of love, victimisation, fantasy and the friendship that develops between two strikingly different men: Valentin (Declan Bennett) a revolutionary and Molina (Samuel Barnett) a window dresser, who dreams a fantasy world involving his favorite horror diva.


The cast features Samuel Barnet, Declan Bennett and Grace Cookey-Gam.


Written by Manuel Puig; new adaptation by José Rivera and Allan Baker.

Directed by Laurie Sansom with sets and costumes by Jon Bausor, lighting by Paul Anderson, and sound design by Philip Pinksy.
