A Mel Brooks style parody following the story line of the D.H. Lawrence novel…with a few twists.
Long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo.
Lady Chatterley welcomes her husband, Clifford, home from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Hall confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.
Despite her husband’s impotence, a subject that everyone struggles to avoid, Constance entertains the idea that one day they could have a child. However, as Clifford’s obsession for industrial pursuits heightens, Constance embarks on a passionate and curiously experimental affair with Mellors, the estate gamekeeper.
This laughter-filled parody of the classic D.H. Lawrence novel will bring you high drama, high comedy and highly-raised eyebrows.
“a hilarious watch, constantly charming and remains true to the spirit of DH Lawrence’s work.”– Ed Fringe Reviews
