Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Dangerous liaisons play out across the Maddermarket stage when the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont compete in a lethal game of seduction and revenge. Once lovers, they are now engaged in a dark rivalry born out of jealously and pride, corrupting the innocent and the virtuous for their own gratification.
On the eve of the French Revolution, Merteuil challenges Valmont to seduce the innocent Cecile before her wedding night, while Valmont has set his sights on the virtuous, married and unobtainable Madame de Tourvel. Although they relish toying mercilessly with the hearts of others, their own may be more fragile than they suppose, and as the tendrils of their plots entwine, no-one can escape the resulting tangle of deceit, danger and desire.
