The production will be filmed for streamed performances to follow later in the year.

A synopsis shares: “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. ”
