Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Christoper Hampton
Directed by William Tate
*recommended for mature audiences*
Rife with intrigue and betrayal, Les Liasons Dangereuses portrays a battle of the sexes between opponents willing to resort to any means, however devious and cruel, in their war for dominance and reputation.
Tantalizing, passionate, ironic, and seductive, Christopher Hampton's award-winning adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos' epistolary novel begins as a delicious amusement, full of nasty, decadent fun, and then deepens into tragedy.
Set in the boudoirs and salons of pre-revolutionary France, this sharp-edged sado-comedy conjures a 1780s world that oozes timeless wit and charm yet drips with maliciousness that is unmistakably contemporary.
