Dangerous Liaisons is famed for its sardonic wit and morally ambiguous depiction of the battle between the sexes. Following the controversial novel by Choderlos de Laclos, Christopher Hampton’s stage adaptation and the teen trash of Cruel Intentions, acclaimed independent company Little Ones Theatre will bring its unique brand of high camp to this lethal drawing room comedy.
Inspired by Charles Ludlam’s Ridiculous Theatre, Derek Jarman, high-fashion Rococo and the decadent period pieces of Peter Greenaway, sex, gender and power-play will riotously take to the stage in an opulent salon of debauchery.
After tackling the sixties beach horror movie, Psycho Beach Party, and Oscar Wilde’s byzantine melodrama, Salomé, Little Ones Theatre’s warped vision of this timeless classic is sure to arouse the senses, and your loins.
