DH Lawrence’s controversial novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover comes to Gainsborough this weekend.

Still provoking debate and opinion today, it is Lawrence’s most talked-about work after it was the subject of an obscenity trial when it was first published.

The story follows Connie Reid, a cultured, independent thinker who marries the emotionally distant Sir Clifford Chatterley.

Connie turns to the bed of the low-born gamekeeper Mellors and experiences true passion and genuine intimacy for the first time.

This, however, begins to lead to a dramatic love triangle and public scandal.

The production is at Trinity Arts Centre on Saturday, February 11 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £12 on 01427 676655 or www.purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase
