A new musical adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s infamous literary classic, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, will receive a strictly limited West End premiere this summer. Crafted by composer John Robinson (Behind the Iron Mask, Duchess Theatre; Closer to the Sun, Harold Pinter Theatre), this world premiere will reenergise Lawrence’s sensation for a new audience.
This production will be filmed at the Shaftesbury Theatre to stream later in the year.
The impassioned tale of female agency and Lady Chatterley’s pursuit of a life more than half-lived changed the literary landscape of Britain. Banned as scandalous erotica when first published and subject of a watershed obscenity trial, Lawrence’s text caused outrage not just because of the expletives and explicit sexual relationship, but because it presented a physical relationship that traversed social class divides. This intense and fiery classic will find new frenzied power in its translation to the stage.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover is directed by the award-winning Sasha Regan with production design by Andrew Exeter
