Dangerous Liaisons

by Christopher Hampton

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Little Ones Theatre by Arrangement with Origin Theatrical LTD on behalf of Samuel French

Enter the opulent salon of debauchery, full of heaving bosoms, panniered skirts, perilous hair and a little Chaka Khan on the harpsichord.

Based on the controversial novel by Choderlos de Laclos, Dangerous Liaisons is a morally ambiguous tale of sex, betrayal and bad behaviour. Now acclaimed independent company Little Ones Theatre brings its unique brand of high camp to this lethal drawing room tragi-comedy.

Inspired by Charles Ludlan’s Ridiculous Theatre, Derek Jarman, high-fashion Rococo and the period pieces of Peter Greenaway, this decadent production was voted one of the best theatre experiences of 2014 by The Herald Sun.

This event is part of MELT: A Celebration of Queer Arts and Culture 2016.
Known for
Green Room Award winning Psycho Beach Party


More than a triumph of theatre; it is an exciting promise for the future of live performance in this city. ★★★★★


So in vogue you can almost smell Madonna. ★★★★


An exhilarating sprint… as savage as ever. ★★★★


Delightful, dazzling and decadent. ★★★★
