About the Play:

Fatal Attraction is a full-length mystery thriller by Bernard Slade. While at her beach-house sorting out her divorce, movie star Blair Griffin receives two visitors, her soon-to-be ex-husband Morgan, and her long-time stalker Tony Lombardi. She soon plans to murder her ex-husband, setting in motion a series of shocking and terrifying events. Will she succeed or will she become the victim in this thrill-a-minute action mystery?

Fatal Attraction takes place in the hideaway beach house of Blair Griffen, a slightly over-the-hill movie star who still rubs elbows with the rich and famous. Blair is getting divorced, and her soon-to-be-ex-husband Morgan arrives to take away some of his belongings. Morgan is about to marry another woman and they have custody of Blair's and his children. Tension rises between the two in the ensuing arguments, when Blair suddenly sees Tony Lombardi, a papparazzo obsessed with her, looking through the window at them. Lombardi, who has been following Blair for 15 years, kills Morgan; only to be murdered, in turn, by Blair. Next to arrive is Lieutenant Gus Braden and his trusty sidekick, Sgt. Doris Aylesworth, to interrogate the actress. Complicating matters is Maggie Stratton, Blair's agent, who shows up unexpectedly. Braden's suspicions seem to die away when he falls for Blair's considerable charms. He warns her to secure the house as the murderer could return. Then he delves into sinister motivations to unravel the plots within plots. But who is the real victim here? The unconventional Lieutenant Braden delves into sinister motivations to unravel the plots within plots.

Fatal Attraction premiered in 1984 at the St. Lawrence Centre Theatre in Toronto, reached London's Theatre Royal Haymarket in 1985. The play has become a favourite scene study vehicle in acting classes and workshops and is regularly performed in regional repertory, college, and community theatre productions.

About the Author:

Bernard Slade Newbound (1930-2019), known professionally as Bernard Slade, was a Canadian playwright and long-time Hollywood TV-sitcom writer. He began his career as an actor performing in over 200 plays on stage, radio and television in regional theatres around Toronto and on camera for the CBC. He moved to Hollywood in the mid-1960s, and was soon writing episodes of such classics-to-be as Bewitched. Credited as creator, writer, story editor and producer of eight series, including The Flying Nun and The Partridge Family, he was considered one of the true heavyweights in Hollywood. By the mid-1970s, he turned his comedic genius to the stage writing more than a dozen plays, including three Broadway hit shows like his phenomenally successful Same Time Next Year, Tribute and Romantic Comedy, which were all turned into Hollywood features.
