Lady Chatterley's Lover at the Met

On tonight at 7:30.

Classic tale of forbidden passion coming to the Met’s stage this month

SPRING is often associated with romance, so there is no better time to revive DH Lawrence’s classic tale of burning desire and forbidden love, Lady Chatterley’s Lover.

Hull Truck theatre company brings the play to The Met in Abertillery this month, with emerging talent Amie Burns Walker taking on the role of the disenchanted lady.

Associate director Nick Lane said: “I think the thing for me about the novel – and it often gets forgotten, I guess partly as a result of the famous obscenities trial – is that the story covers far more than simple physical love.

“We have themes of political change, the rising of the working classes, the desire for escape and, of course, above all a tender and beautiful love story.”

When originally published in 1928, the text suffered censorship and scandal that would not be lifted until the Penguin trial of 1960. This adaptation contains adult scenes and is recommended for people aged 15 and over.

Tickets for the performance, which is on Wednesday, March 16 at 7.30pm, are £10. Call 01495 355800.

Hull Truck is a brilliant company - they've put on some great plays we've seen at the Met and elsewhere. Can't wait  Smile

The performance was brilliant as usual. The cast and set were excellent and there was a decent crowd, especially for a midweek event. We also met up with a few old friends so it was all-in-all a great evening.  Very Happy

Hull Truck Company

It certainly was an excellent evening, I have enjoyed Hull Truck productions for many years, must have seen at least 20 performances all over the UK. This one a little different but no less enjoyable. Keep an eye out for their next visit.

I also had a chat with the Actors in Wetherspoons, interestingly they were saying at The Royal in Blaina, they did say that it was v. good.
