LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES
Les Liaisons Dangereuses first burst onto the scene as an RSC stage play in 1985.
It is a brilliantly theatrical play packed with wonderfully layered characters and sparkling with wit. Famous as the Oscar-winning film Dangerous Liaisons it examines the corruption and cruelty at the top of a louche society about to vaporise in the cauldron of the French Revolution, a society of sexual politics, power games and revenge. The play, written by Christopher Hampton from the original novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, explores the boredom of the wealthy and the vulnerability of women in a patriarchal world.
Directed for FromeDrama by John Palmer (Potter Plays and Terminus) this production will have a contemporary set, lavish 18th Century costumes and at its core, the driving power of sexual and romantic love.
