Kiss of the Spider Woman tickets are now booking for this stunning adaptation.

Argentinian author Manuel Puig’s novel Kiss of the Spider Woman comes to the Menier Chocolate Factory in this stunning new adaptation by Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Allan Baker.

Two very different men strike up an unlikely friendship when they find themselves imprisoned together, one for being a revolutionary, the other for being a homosexual. In their Latin America prison cell the men begin to learn about each other as they weave the tale of the seductive Spider Woman.

Following his acclaimed run as Artistic Director of National Theatre of Scotland, Laurie Sansom directs this show which stars Samuel Barnett (The History Boys, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) as Molina and Declan Bennett (Once, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Valentin.

Don’t miss your chance to see Kiss of the Spider Woman at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory.

James Grace5th April

Brillent production with a excellent cast. Great set that set the scene for a harsh prism life. Full of life drama and emotion (love, politices,family, humour & male roles). Great venue with a very diverse audience.


The best I have ever seen! Really a masterpiece and a must-watch!

Nick Kelly24th March

Samuel Barnett & Declan Bennett are heartbreakingly compelling & mesmerising & so utterly convincing. The 100 minutes fly by as they draw you into their world.
