Les Liaisons Dangereuses

by Christopher Hampton
|
From the novel by Choderlos de Laclos
Directed by Steve Thompson
3rd – 11th March 1995

Paris in the late eighteenth century is a centre of scandal and intrigue. Two experienced ‘libertines’, the Marquise de Merteuil and her cynical accomplice Valmont, plan and execute the seduction of a young girl, barely out of her convent.

Christopher Hampson’s masterful adaptation of the Laclos novel, first performed at the RSC, won him the best screenplay Oscar for the filmed version with Glenn Close and Michelle Pfeiffer.

A funny but chilling portrayal of decadence and sexual power play amongst the French aristocracy — a society erupting with passion and a desire for revenge!

Part of the Barn’s 1994-1995 Season.
