LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES
In 1782 Choderlos de Laclos' novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton's stage adaptation became an award-winning sensation on both sides of the Atlantic.
Following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, Josie Rourke's acclaimed 30th anniversary production transfers to Broadway's Booth Theatre, with Janet McTeer reprising her role as La Marquise de Merteuil. Tony Award-winning, Liev Schrieber, will play Le Vicomte de Valmont.
La Marquise and her former lover, Valmont, compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night, but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and happily married Madame de Tourvel.
