not: lady chatterley's lover

Sweet Holyrood (Venue 94)

A darkly comic, Mel Brooks-style parody following the storyline of the DH Lawrence novel… with a few twists. Lord Clifford Chatterley comes home to his wife, Constance (Lady Chatterley), from a war that has left the world in tatters. With his legs also left in tatters, Clifford returns to Wragby Hall confined to a wheelchair. As the couple grow apart, Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper Mellors. Long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo.
