“Children they are, these men, but my word, they’re revengeful children.”

Review this show


D H Lawrence’s groundbreaking play, never performed in his lifetime, entwines the struggles of a young married couple with those of a community on strike.

In Nottinghamshire, 1912, trouble is brewing in the mines – and simmering closer to home. When Mrs Gascoyne discovers an explosive secret about her newly-married son, it risks the hard-earned security of her daughter-in-law. But Minnie Gascoyne isn’t going to settle without a fight.

Jack Gamble’s in-the-round staging tears down the walls of the Gascoyne family home, and exposes Lawrence’s remarkable characters to a world approaching boiling point.

Critic reviews

You’ll have a fascinating evening of working class melodrama and first class up-close acting

· London Box Office

The sheer quality of the performances here may well leave you thinking this was a binary fault that Lawrence himself never quite resolved

· Arts Desk

A play in which sex, class and industrial politics are effortlessly intertwined

· The Guardian

Nunn displays an effortlessly impressive emotional range and an airy sensuality in the title role

· WhatsOnStage

Evocative in-the-round revival of DH Lawrence’s play of marriages and mothers

· The Stage

There are certainly worse plays that are revived simply because they’re famous, and so it seems sort of unfair to insist that this revival needs extra justification just because it’s not


There's passion aplenty, the sting of authenticity in accents and dialect and the kind of dialogue one would expect from a writer with Lawrence's reputation

· Broadway World

Although the show is rather lengthy at 2 hours and 20 minutes, every second feels worth it
