Not: Lady Chatterley’s Lover
Thanks to the support of Arts Council England, Red Rose Chain, The Pimlott Foundation and our Tilt Crowdfunders we are fully funded and currently in the R&D and rehearsal stage of Not: Lady Chatterley’s lover – a darkly funny period drama, parodying the classic novel by D.H. Lawrence. As part of the development we have been working with Stephen Harper (Told by An Idiot), Helen Baggett (Gecko), Annie Sertich (Groundlings) and composers for the project: Savage & Spies.
Working with these companies it is our intention to create a balance between the drama of a great classic and straight-laced delivery during highly comic situations.
Lord Clifford Chatterley comes home to his wife, Constance (Lady Chatterley) from a war that has left the world in tatters. With his legs also left in tatters, Clifford returns to Wragby Hall confined to a wheelchair.
Despite Clifford’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; it is his duty to have an heir. However, with the added pressure of being a success in his intellectual and industrial pursuits, Clifford and Constance become distanced, leading to a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair between Lady Chatterley and the estate gamekeeper: Mellors.
We will be working with leading companies in devising, improvisation, movement, music and art to create a balance between the drama of a great classic and the straight-laced delivery of highly comic situations.
