Written by Christopher Hampton, this new production is directed by Melissa Foulger whose work on Pluto and Wolves thrilled audiences in Actor’s Express’ last two seasons. Paul Hester and Park Krausen lead the cast as rivals and ex-lovers partaking in a dangerous game of sexual conquest in pre-revolution France. Based on the scandalous 1782 novel by Choderlos de Laclos and later adapted into an Oscar-winning film, Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a stunning slow burn of carnal scheming.
