Alexander McQueen: The Play

On the  fifth anniversary of the death of Alexander McQueen yesterday, a new play based on the designer has been unveiled. 

Written by British playwright James Phillips, of The Rubenstein Kiss, the new production will explore "the visionary imagination and dark dream world" of Lee McQueen. Set over one night in London, the play will focus on a girl who breaks into the designer's home to steal a dress and is caught by McQueen.

Drawing on the dramatic staging of his catwalk shows, the play will be directed by Shakespeare veteran John Caird, with production design by David Farley and choreography by Christopher Marney, The Guardian reports. It's said that the play has the full backing of the McQueen family, with Phillips asserting that McQueen's sister Janet agreed that the script was "true to his spirit".
