“In every living thing is the desire for love.”
with Rupert Hill as Mellors
Tender, thoughtful and impassioned, Lady Chatterley’s Lover
is the book that changed Britain.
When Clifford Chatterley returns from the war a wounded hero, his young bride Connie does her best to care for him. Neglected and alone, she instigates a love affair with the gamekeeper, Mellors, a relationship that bridges the social divide and challenges convention. In touch, they find simplest of truths. In lust, they risk the greatest of scandals.
Lawrence’s most sensual of novels was first published in 1928, but only in 1960 did an uncensored version become available, leading to one of the most famous trials of the century.
