A play about fashion designer Alexander McQueen will receive its world premiere at the St James Theatre in May.

McQueen is written by James Phillips and will be directed by John Caird. It runs from May 12 to June 6, with press nights on May 19 and 20.

The show is described as “more than just a bio-play” about the designer, who died in February 2010.

“It is stepping into the fairy-story landscape of McQueen’s mind,” producers said in a statement.

McQueen will be designed by David Farley, with choreography by Christopher Marney, lighting by David Howe, sound by John Leonard, and video and projection design by Tim Bird. Casting is by Jayne Collins and Kate Plantin.

It is produced by Robert Mackintosh, with Julian Stoneman as executive producer.
