About this show

Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents Christopher Hampton's sizzling play Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The play, based on Choderlos de Laclos' infamous 1782 novel of sexual intrigue and ruthless manipulation, is set in the salons and boudoirs of pre-Revolutionary France. Two high-powered and well-heeled friends, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, devise a game to test their skills as rapacious lovers. The Marquise challenges the Vicomte to woo the virginal Cecile, to which he gladly agrees, seeing it as a way to ultimately seduce the prudish Madame Tourvel. In their tenacious battle for the upper hand, the players, like the pawns, become part of the wreckage.
