A new musical adaptation of the infamous Lady Chatterley’s Lover comes to the West End’s Shaftesbury Theatre on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th June 2021.
The new musical adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s infamous literary classic, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, will come to the West End for a strictly limited run this summer. Crafted by composer John Robinson (Behind the Iron Mask, Duchess Theatre; Closer to the Sun, Harold Pinter Theatre), this world premiere at Shaftesbury Theatre will reenergise Lawrence’s sensation for a new audience.
This world premiere adaptation will be filmed to stream later in the year before future live performances.
The impassioned tale of female agency and Lady Chatterley’s pursuit of a life more than half- lived changed the literary landscape of Britain. Banned as scandalous erotica when first published and subject of a watershed obscenity trial, Lawrence’s text caused outrage not just because of the expletives and explicit sexual relationship, but because it presented a physical relationship that traversed social class divides. This intense and fiery classic will find new frenzied power in its translation to the stage.
