Christopher Hampton Life

Christopher James Hampton, CBE, FRSL (born 26 January 1946) is a British playwright, screenwriter, translator, and film producer.

He is best known for his performance based on the novel Les Liaisons dangereuses and the film version Dangerous Liaisons (1988), which received the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

He was nominated in the same category as the film version of Ian McEwan's Atonement (2007).

Early life and theatrical debut

Hampton was born in Faial, Azores, to British parents Dorothy Patience (née Herrington) and Bernard Patrick Hampton, a marine telecommunications engineer for Cable & Wireless. His father's work led them to settle in Aden, Yemen, and Egypt's Cairo and Alexandria, as well as Hong Kong and Zanzibar. During the Suez Crisis in 1956, the family had to leave Egypt under cover of darkness, leaving their possessions behind.

Hampton attended the independent boarding school Lancing College in Surrey, near the village of Lancing in West Sussex at the age of 13. In the Combined Cadet Force, he received house colours for boxing and established himself as a sergeant. (CCF) David Hare, who later became a dramatist, was one of his contemporaries at Lancing, and poet Harry Guest was a tutor.

Hampton as a Sacher Scholar, he read German and French at New College, Oxford, from 1964. In 1968, he earned his First Class Degree.

When attending Oxford University, Hampton became interested in the theatre. When Did You Last See My Mother? About adolescent homosexuality, The Oxford University Dramatic Society (OUDS) performed his original play When Did You Last See My Mother? He drew from his own experience at Lancing. Hampton gave the assignment to play agent Peggy Ramsay, who was very interested in it. The play was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London and then to the Comedy Theatre in 1966; in 1966, Hampton was the youngest writer in the modern period to have a play performed in the West End. Around this time, Hampton's filmplays began. Richard Attenborough and Bryan Forbes adapted this play, but no film version was ever made.
