Description

Anne-Marie Duff returns to the National to play Lizzie Holroyd in this new production of DH Lawrence's trilogy Husbands & Sons, adapted by Ben Power. Husbands & Sons interweaves three of D H Lawrence’s greatest dramas, and plays them simultaneously. Describing the world he came from with fierce tenderness, Lawrence evokes a now-vanished world of manual labour and working class pride. On the cracked border of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire stands the village of Eastwood. The women of the village, wives and mothers, struggle to hold their families and their own souls together in the shadow of the great Brinsley pit. Now on sale - opens 19 October 2015 in the Dorfman Theatre. Marianne Elliot directs. A co-production with the Royal Exchange Theatre. http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/shows/husbands-and-sons
