- Empty Bed Blues
Written by Nottingham-based playwright Stephen Lowe.
"After the national success of his Brian Clough comedy- Old Big 'Ead in the Spirit of the Man, and the critically acclaimed Smile, Stephen Lowe returns to local "hero"- DH Lawrence - for a moving and passionate study of the pains of love, of living, and of dying.
In 1929, DH Lawrence and his wife visited two wealthy young Americans, hoping they might finance an edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. The quartet proves to be a potent, unpredictable combination.
Penniless and desperate to find a publisher for his "Lady Chatterley", Lawrence and Frieda turn to a legendary couple of the American "lost generation", the drug fuelled poet and publisher Harry Crosby and his beautiful sculpturess wife, Caresse. Their passionate experiment in the total excess of living collides with the Lawrence's more painful relationship into a a major clash of culture, of class and of sexual desire."
