Les Liaisons Dangereuses Opening Soon!


Amicus Productions presents Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Christopher Hampton at The Papermill Theatre, at the Todmorden Mills historical site (67 Pottery Rd, Toronto). It runs November 10th–12th and November 17-19th at 8pm and November 13th and 19th at 2pm. Tickets are $25 regular, $20 seniors, and $15 students. Tickets may be purchased online at www.amicustickets.ca  or by phone at 416-860-6176.

Filled with symmetry, sex, and style. Bored 1700’s era nobles have more than enough of everything. Everything, that is, except desire. Not content to sit back and languish in their obscene opulence, two aristocrats engage in a wager of seduction and betrayal. On the surface it’s all meant as an amusing trifle. But they’ve set loose powerful forces that will impact their cozy lives in profound ways.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses is produced by Amicus founding member, Maureen Lukie and directed by Victoria Shepherd with set design by Alexis Chubb, lighting design by Jamie Sample, costumes by Lindsay Forde, and musical composition/sound design by John Stuart Campbell. Stage Managed by Liz Currie, this production features the talents of Renée Cullen as Merteuil and Chris Coculuzzi as Valmont both of whom earned Best Supporting Actor Nominations at this year’s ACT-CO awards ceremony. Alongside Renée and Chris are Melanie Leon as Tourvel, Conor Ling as Danceny, Kerrie Lamb as Volanges, Andrew Batten as Azolan, Christina Leonard as Cecile, Jenn Keay as Rosemonde, Lindsay Forde as Emilie, and Jeff Burke as Major Domo.
