“I resolved to write a book which would make a sensation and echo over the world after I left it.”
Pierre Ambroise François Choderlos de Laclos’ Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) is the pinnacle of scandalous novels. Published in 1782, the story of scheming aristocrats, coersion, and manipulation makes a stunningly relevant tragedy for our times. With its adult themes of sexual predation, and contrast of genuine love with possessive relationships, this play is a fitting finale to the 2019 season.
