Christopher Hampton

Christopher James Hampton was born in England in 1946. While at Oxford University, he wrote about his experiences with adolescent homosexuality in the play When Did You Last See My Mother? The play moved from London's Royal Court Theatre to the Comedy Theatre, making Mr. Hampton the youngest modern playwright to debut in the West End. He then adapted the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses into both a stage and film version, the latter of which won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 1988. Twenty years later he was nominated again for his adaptation of Ian McEwan's novel Atonement. Mr. Hampton is also an accomplished translator, adapting published versions of Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, Ghosts, and Hedda Gabler, as well as Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning God of Carnage.
