Lady Chatterley's Lover
From 7:30PM, Tuesday, March 24, 2020 to 7:30PM, Saturday, March 28, 2020
Venue: Darlington Hippodrome
By D.H. Lawrence Adapted and directed by Ciaran McConville "In every living thing is the desire for love." When Clifford Chatterley returns from the war a wounded hero, his young bride Connie does her best to care for him. Neglected and alone, she instigates a love affair with the gamekeeper, Mellors, a relationship that bridges the social divide and challenges convention. In touch, they find simplest of truths. In lust, they risk the greatest of scandals. Lawrence's most sensual of novels was first published in 1928, but only in 1960 did an unexpurgated version become available, leading to one of the most famous trials of the century. Tender, thoughtful and impassioned, Lady Chatterley's Lover is the book that changed Britain. TV regular Rupert Hill (Casualty, BBC; Coronation Street, ITV) will star alongside Phoebe Marshall (Witness for the Prosecution, London County Hall). This production contains material of an adult nature. An age guide of 14+ is suggested.
