Our next production is Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Christopher Hampton, directed by Lucy Jepson.
In the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society has had to suspend work on our next production, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, originally to be staged from 22th to 25th April 2020.
We have been informed that theatre facilities at the University Drama Studio are unlikely to be available for rehearsals or performances before 2021. As a result, like professional and amateur theatre workers across the country, we are unable to confirm when our next production will take place. Regretfully therefore we have had to defer our planned staging of Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The play is now provisionally scheduled for November 2021. We shall issue further details as the situation develops.
In the meantime, you can watch excerpts from our online rehearsal that we held in May!

The Vicomte de Valmont vows to seduce a married woman of renowned virtue in this adaptation of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ 1782 novel. Valmont’s former lover, the Marquise de Merteuil, encourages this endeavour and offers him a reward that he simply cannot refuse, capturing those around them in a web of seduction and betrayal.
