THE MARQUISE DE MERTEUIL IS A WOMAN SCORNED
Enlisting the help of the womaniser Valmont, she sets to take revenge on former lover by corrupting his intended bride, the innocent Cécile.
But Valmont has ideas of his own. His eyes are set on prim and proper Madame de Tourvel - to him, the ultimate challenge. And soon the web of sex, lies and intrigue grows more tangled than anyone could have imagined...
Fireside Theatre presents an unconventional staging of the classic story. An all-female cast performs this timely reimagining of the novel that shocked the world.
