About this show

The Game, set in the decade before the French Revolution, is a fascinating study of a dissolute aristocracy about to perish. Based on Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Cholderos de Laclos, the notorious story centers around the charming but vicious Madame Merteuil who plots revenge against a lover who has jilted her. She enlists another former lover, Vicomte deValmont, to seduce a young woman who is betrothed to Merteuil's target of revenge. The Machiavellian machinations of the 18th century aristocracy wreck havoc on all concerned, foretelling the demise of the ruling class.
