The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd
BY DH LAWRENCE
3 September 2014 — 4 October 2014
Do you think I care about what you say? Oh, I’ve had enough. I’ve tried, I’ve tried for years, for the children’s sake. Now I’ve had enough of your shame and disgrace.
Lizzie Holroyd faces a terrible choice: to stick with the life she’s been dealt or to escape. But such a monumental decision has consequences.
Set in the Nottinghamshire mining community in 1914, controversial novelist DH Lawrence draws a powerful portrait of a working class woman on the edge.
This is Paul Miller’s first production as Artistic Director of the Orange Tree Theatre.
