synopsis

Explore the deliciously decadent underworld of 1930's Weimar Germany in Dangerous, Michael McKeever's deconstruction of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses." Two players of a very dangerous game try to outwit each other with tragic results. With intelligence, humor and more than a hint of sexuality, this fascinating play explores the human heart and all of its complexities against a backdrop of political and social upheaval.
