Hull Truck theatre Company Return with Twentieth Century Classic

The Met welcomes the return of Hull Truck Theatre Company with Nick Lane\’s adaptation of Lady Chatterley\’s Lover on Wednesday 11 May at 8pm.

Lady Constance Chatterley is trapped in a loveless marriage. Injured in battle, her husband Clifford is unable to satisfy her sexual desires and so Constance finds herself Drawn towards a man she meets in the woods…

As their passionate love affair reaches its climax, the constraints of Constance\’s class-led society are broken down as the two lovers find fulfilment with each other.

Published in 1928, D.H. Lawrence\’s controversial work was banned from sale until 1960 for its frank and explicit depiction of sex and its portrayal of a passionate and adulterous love affair. Nick Lane\’s adaptation was commissioned by Hull Truck and is a faithful reworking of one of the twentieth century\’s great stories.

Nick Lane has been writing for Hull Truck since 2000, when he was given the opportunity to adapt and direct Frankenstein. He has adapted Moby Dick (co-written with John Godber) and 1984 for Northern Broadsides. He has also written Blue Cross Xmas, My Favourite Summer and Me and Me Dad and a number of plays for children.

Contains Adult Scenes. Recommended for ages 14+. Tickets are £12, £10 concession and £5 for under 26s. To book phone the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go online www.themet.biz
