Kiss of the Spider Woman was written by Manuel Puig while he was living in exile, and combines three things that shaped his life: sex, revolution and movies. This adaptation of the novel by Jose Riviera and Allan Baker brings the novel to life at the Menier Chocolate Factory after it premiered as a play at the Bush Theatre in the 1970s.
