Controversial tale hits stage

HULL Truck Company presents a version of DH Lawrence’s once-banned work Lady Chatterley’s Lover, adapted for the stage and directed by Nick Lane.

It can be seen at Derby Theatre from March 29 to March 31 and tells the story of Lady Constance Chatterley, trapped in a loveless marriage.

Her husband Clifford is unable to satisfy her and so Constance finds herself in the arms of another, namely Mellors, her husband’s gamekeeper. As the passionate affair reaches its climax, the constraints of Constance’s class-led society are broken down as the two lovers find fulfilment with each other.

Written in 1925, DH 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.

Years ahead of its time, this work contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
