New production of Lady Chatterley's Lover at Salisbury Playhouse
Sheffield Theatres and English Touring Theatre’s new production of D.H. Lawrence’s classic novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover comes to the Main House at Salisbury Playhouse for one week only from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 November.
Passion, class, love and sexual freedom are at the heart of this new adaptation of a truly modern classic.
This sensual and thrilling novel was banned in the UK until 1960. Inspired by the setting of his Nottinghamshire childhood, D.H. Lawrence’s tender story shows how three people, reeling from the aftermath of the Great War, struggle to survive in a world which has been blown apart.
D. H. Lawrence (1885 – 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and painter. As well as Lady Chatterley’s Lover, his major works include Sons and Lovers, Women in Love and The Rainbow.
Adapted and directed by Phillip Breen, the cast includes Hedydd Dylan as Lady Chatterley and Jonah Russell as Mellors. The company is completed by Aretha Ayeh, Will Irvine, Ciaran McIntyre, Eugene O’Hare, David Osmond, Rachel Sanders and Alice Selwyn.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover is designed by Laura Hopkins with lighting design by Natasha Chivers, sound design by Andrea J. Cox and movement director by Ayse Tashkiran.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover contains strong language, nudity and scenes of a sexual nature and is not suitable for children. An age guide of 13+ is suggested. It runs in the Main House at Salisbury Playhouse for just 7 performances from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 November.
