Just one chance in London to catch this darkly comic parody of the famous D.H. Lawrence novel from Happy Idiot Productions.
Not: Lady Chatterley's Lover will be at Stockwell Playhouse on Sunday 18 November, marking a fitting and final punctuation to the company's sold-out 2018 UK tour.
Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, 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.
As the couple grow apart, Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper, Mellors.
Think The Naked Gun and Airplane! mixed with a steamy costume drama in this laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence classic.
Here's the trailer ...
The play is adapted by Lawrence Russell, who also plays Clifford Chatterley in the show.
He is joined on stage by Christina Baston as Lady Chatterley, Wesley Griffin as Mellors and Rebecca McClay as Mrs Bolton.
Discussing the play, Mr Russell said ...
"Lady Chatterley's Lover is a quintessential British novel which - over the years - has been adapted for film, TV and stage so I felt it was due time for a new take on the classic.
The key points of the novel are in there, but of course there are a few twists to draw out to highlight the comedy.
Our production will keep the pace fast and adapted to work brilliantly with our strong cast of four.
Ultimately our goal is to entertain with the intention of leading the characters to the point of touching drama and then nudging them into a puddle!"
You can expect high drama, high comedy and highly raised eyebrows in what should be an intriguing show for both those who know the novel and those who are experiencing it for the first time.
