After a great run in Edinburgh and a Best New Writing award, Happy Idiot are bringing Not: Lady Chatterley’s Lover back to The Avenue to kick off their Autumn Tour!
Developed by Lawrence Russell (The Importance of Being Earnest, Mr. Tod, Richard III, The Tempest) and his theatre company, Happy Idiot, feast your eyes and ears on this Mel Brooks style parody mixed with a steamy costume drama in this laughter-filled production of the D.H. Lawrence novel.
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.
There will be long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo.
Includes swearing and scenes of a sexual nature
