Director

Melissa Foulger

Synopsis

Two rivals and ex-lovers play a dangerous game of sexual conquest in pre-revolution France. The intrigue mounts as they trample innocent hearts in their wake. Based on the scandalous 1782 novel and later adapted into an Oscar-winning film, Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a stunning slow burn of carnal scheming. Launching the season at Actor’s Express, this modern classic scorches the stage in a daring new production from the director of Pluto and Wolves and the fashion forward avant-garde costume designer of Spring Awakening and Rocky Horror Show.
