Happy Idiot in association with Worthing Theatres and Museum presents: Not: Lady Chatterley’s Lover
A parody of Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence
Think The Naked Gun and Airplane! mixed with a steamy costume drama. A laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence novel.
Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Manor confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.
Despite her husband’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; Constance entertains the idea that one day they could have a child. However, as the couple grow apart Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper: Mellors.
Expect long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo in this Mel Brooks style parody.
