Dangerous Liaisons
  • Camden Fringe

The Marquise de Merteiul 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 Ccile. 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. Two and a half centuries later, this new take has all the hilarity and scandal of the original, but takes a fresh look at its gender politics. An all-female cast performs this timely reimagining of the novel that shocked the world.Previous praise for Fireside Theatre:"mesmerising theatre" - Varsity"An innovative production which breathes life into Austens classic novel" - EdFringe ReviewScenes of sexual abuse (non-explicit)

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
