"It's beyond my control"
Just a quick note to say that an original audio adaptation of the love letters of Les Liaisons Dangereuses
has been released by Audible UK. Christopher Hampton's own adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos’ epistolary novel is currently running in a well-received production by Josie Rourke at the Donmar Warehouse (here's my review
), and this audio recording has been designed to complement that show. Directed and edited for audio by Zoé Ford, and translated by Jack Sain, this selection of letters featured within the original book sheds new intimate light onto the complex web of relationships in the play and best of all, it is free and downloadable from audible.co.uk/Donmar
