29 May – 8 June 2014
Little Ones Theatre
Lawler Theatre, MTC Neon
Dangerous Liaisons is famed for its sardonic wit and morally ambiguous depiction of the battle between the sexes. From the controversial novel by Choderlos de Laclos to Christopher Hampton’s stage adaptation and the teen trash of Cruel Intentions, acclaimed independent company Little Ones Theatre will bring their unique brand of high camp to this lethal drawing room comedy. Inspired by Charles Ludlam’s Ridiculous Theatre, Derek Jarman, high-fashion Rococo and the decadent period pieces of Peter Greenaway, sex, gender and power-play will riotously take to the stage in an opulent salon of debauchery.
By arrangement with ORiGIN Theatrical Ltd on behalf of Samuel French.
Katie Sfetkidis’s lighting works wonders with the static space; a killer, gold-curtained, faux-opulent marvel by Eugyeene Teh. – Herald Sun
The gold lamé set and sheer period costumes [both by Eugyeene Teh], are brilliant, like being inside a Ferrero Rocher. The lighting [Katie Sfetkidis] and sound [Russell Goldsmith and Daniel Nixon] are geared to the nightclub rather than the boudoir, lending the piece a certain dirty glamour. – TimeOut
