"Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot." - D.H. Lawrence! Banned in the United States until 1959 for its uncompromising depiction of female sexual desire, Lawrence's meditative and passionate novel reveals a benumbed nation, England after World War I, and the emergence of "a new man" (personified by Lady Chatterley's lover, the gamekeeper Oliver Mellors) who not only transcends class, but embodies both the masculine and feminine ideals - someone who is both rough and tender. Originally conceived for Seattle's Book-It Repertory Theatre, Vreeke and Machala's adaptation of Lawrence's great novel achieves literary stagecraft: Characters speak not only the novel's dialogue but also its narrative passages. The style is uniquely true to Lawrence's text capturing all the heat of his language and the life blood of his characters.
