UNFORGIVABLE LOVE is a vivid reimagining of the French classic DANGEROUS LIAISONS, set in the glittering, dramatic world of Harlem in the 1940s. It takes us from the grand townhomes on Lenox Avenue to the lush woods of Anselm, North Carolina, and finally to the pews of Harlem’s Mount Nebo Baptist Church, along the way shedding a new light on the source material’s classic themes of love, faith, lost innocence, betrayal and redemption.
