SUMMARY

Following the story-line of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, but with some twists along the way; there will be long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo.

Lord Clifford Chatterley comes home to his wife, Constance (Lady Chatterley) from a war that has left the world in tatters. With his legs also left in tatters, Clifford returns to Wragby Hall confined to a wheelchair.

Despite Clifford’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; it is his duty as a man to have an heir. However, with the added pressure of being a success in his intellectual and industrial pursuits, Clifford and Constance become distanced, leading to a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair between Lady Chatterley and the estate gamekeeper: Mellors.

Expect high drama, high comedy and highly raised eyebrows in what will be a fantastic show for those who know the novel as well as those who are coming to it for the first time.
