Buxton Opera House is offering an evocative stage adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover on Tuesday, May 24, at 7.30pm.

Lady Constance Chatterley is trapped in a loveless marriage. Injured in battle, her husband Clifford is unable to satisfy her desires and so Constance finds herself in the arms of another.

But Lady Chatterley’s man is a bit of rough. Mellors, her paramour, is her husband’s gamekeeper. As their passionate love affair reaches its climax, the constraints of Constance’s class-led society are broken down.

Written in 1925, D.H. Lawrence’s controversial work was banned from sale until 1960 for its frank and explicit depiction of sex and its portrayal of a passionate and adulterous love affair.

Tickets for Lady Chatterley’s Lover are priced at £13.50. Call the box office on 0845 127 2190.
