Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Christopher Hampton
Paper Lantern are proud to present 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses', Christopher Hampton's classic play based on the scandalous eighteenth-century French novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. Set in precarious times shortly before the French Revolution, the play deliciously documents the cruel games and manipulation of a bored aristocracy. The central characters, The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont are two narcissistic rivals (and ex-lovers) who use seduction as a vengeful weapon to control and exploit others. While these ruthless aristocrats toy with other people's hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.
Contains material of an adult nature.
Tickets: £15, £12 (OAP, FTS, under 16's)
