Choderlos de Laclos

Dangerous liaisons

It´s stronger than me

Choderlos de Laclos´ novel is well-known thanks to Christopher Hampton´s adaptation, which won the best English play of 1985. The story became the inspiration for numerous film adaptations, of which the one from 1988 excels, starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich,  Michelle Pfeifer, Uma Thurman and Keanu Reeves. Christopher Hampton was awarded Oscar for the screenplay. The Czech audience also knows well the adaptation of Miloš Forman, who called the story Valmont. For now, the latest famous adaptation of this plot is a movie of Roger Kumbler called Cruel Intentions, while in our theatre we will be staging the romantic story for the very first time. 


The two famous lovers, marquis de Merteuil and viscount de Valmont will be led together by the thirst for retribution which will whirl the set of lies, intrigue and deception which backfire on them. Only when they understand that human emotions are not toys to play with according to their needs, it is nearly too late. Our adaptation directed by David Šiktanec will be great challenge for the cast.
