A slow burn of carnal scheming, Les Liaisons Dangereuses provides a voyeuristic peek into the aristocratic world of two rivals, ex-lovers who use sex as a weapon to humiliate and degrade others. National Theatre Live brings the drama to you straight from the London stage via HD broadcast at Irvine Barclay Theatre. In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos' novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalized the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton's irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke's revival now marks the play's 30-year anniversary. Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus), the cast includes Elaine Cassidy (The Paradise), Janet McTeer (The White Queen) and Dominic West (The Wire). The Observer (London) called it "one of the best stage adaptations ever written."
