‘Dangerous Liaisons’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Playwright:  Christopher Hampton, adapted from the 18th-century novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos

Synopsis:  Set in France around 1760, the Marquise de Merteuil needs a favour from her ex-lover, Vicomte de Valmont. One of the Marquise de Merteuil’s ex-lovers, Gercourt, is betrothed to a virtuous young woman called Cecile de Volanges, who has only recently been presented to society after spending her formative years in the shelter of a convent. The Marquise would like Valmont to seduce Cecile before her wedding day, thus humiliating Gercourt. But Valmont has a conquest of his own in mind: Madame de Tourvel, the beautiful, virtuous and God-fearing wife of a member of Parliament. The Marquise doesn’t think that Valmont can seduce Mme de Tourvel. She tells him that if he can provide written proof of a sexual encounter with Mme de Tourvel, she will offer him a reward: one last night with her. Valmont, however, will find himself falling in love with Mme de Tourvel, and facing the deadly jealousy of the Marquise de Merteuil. All along, Cecile de Volanges is used as a pawn in this game of sexual conquest and scorned love.
