Two former lovers come together in pre-revolutionary France to corrupt the innocent and the virtuous for selfish kicks and fresh sexual conquests. 

These consummate seducers wield sex as a means to power, apply battleground strategies to affairs of the human heart and play seduction as a competitive sport.

But when he falls in love for real, she realises she is playing a game with something and someone that she can't bear to lose.

And when they turn on each other, it’s win or die…

200 years since the publication of Choderlos de Laclos’ scandalous novel, Les Liaisons Dangereuses remains shocking, seductive and hilariously funny.

OVO puts its trademark twist on a theatrical classic with an intimate and fiercely physical production, featuring a live string quartet providing Bridgerton influenced musical accompaniment, and remixing the play’s themes of women and power for the #metoo generation.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses premiered in 1985, making stars of Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan. The subsequent film adaptation, featuring Glenn Close and John Malkovich, was a critical and box office hit.
