Show Summary - Les Liaisons Dangereuses Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a sexy French drama set in the late 1780s, based on a novel written by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. The production is directed by Josie Rourke, the artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse. The English-language theatrical adaptation was written by Christopher Hampton, who is one of the leading dramatists working in the overlap between the French and English languages. Several of his translations of French-language plays have been performed on Broadway, including this season’s The Father by Florian Zeller, and God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza. Les Liaisons Dangereuses premiered in 1985 produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon, followed by a transfer production to London, then to a bigger West End theatre in London. The Broadway premiere took place in 1987, and it was then revived on Broadway in 2008, starring Ben Daniels and Laura Linney. Furthermore, the story was adapted in to a film released in 1998 starring Glenn Close and John Malkovich, for which Christopher Hampton won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. A modern adaptation of this story can also be seen in the 1999 film Cruel Intentions. The present revival, which marks the 30-year anniversary of the premiere, is a transfer production from London’s prestigious venue, the Donmar Warehouse.
