One of the most significant plays appearing for the first time in the posthumous collection of writings by Angela Carter, The Curious Room: Plays, Film Scripts, and an Opera (1996), is Lulu, a 1987 adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s Lulu plays, originally planned for a production at the National Theatre. Carter tried to depict a more sympathetic Lulu and saw the play - like her fairy-tale adaptations - as part of her project to demythologize archetypes, in this case, the femme fatale figures of Pandora and Eve. In 1988 the original version of the Lulu plays was published for the first time in two issues of Theater Heute, and the world premiere took place in Hamburg in 1989. Carter's play, in contrast, was not produced until after her death-in the mid-1990s in Leeds.
