Adapted from the 18th century novel by Choderlos de Laclos, this tragic tale of seduction, scandal and deceit follows the cruel social games played by Marquise de Merteuil and the Viscount de Valmont. The “deliciously naughty” story weaves an intricate web of intrigue, domination and seduction, something like a thrilling romance novel, according to director Mark Williams. Valhalla brings the intrigue to life with lush costuming by Merilu Dillard, and stars an all-star cast led by LTCC theater department head David Hamilton.
Diana Evans plays Merteuil, Christina Proctor plays Tourvel, Brianna Biller and Matt Ault are the young lovers Cecile and Danceny, Pam Taylor is Mme. Volange and Jeff Whitt, Liz Tonkinson, Ethel Aubrey and Chris Taylor contribute in smaller, but pivotal roles.
