A COMPELLING MUSICAL STORY ABOUT ONE OF ENGLAND'S GREATEST AND MOST NOTORIOUS NOVELISTS.

Lady Chatterley's Lover
Women in Love
The Rainbow
Sons and Lovers

Set between Lawrence’s formative years in Nottingham and 1930, LORENZO and LADY C is a powerful story with an exciting and diverse musical score that captures the spirit and passion of D.H. Lawrence the man, the writer and the lover, and the changing times in which he lived.
 ​
“The structure both in the story and the music is extremely clever and you tell a complex story very winningly.”
BEN ELTON, Writer and Lyricist

“The musical score is wonderfully engaging and contains some beautifully moving songs.”
MICKEY ROONEY, Legendary film and theatre star

'LORENZO and LADY C' CHOSEN BY DR MARIA THANASSA AS PART OF LECTURE TO BRITISH D.H. LAWRENCE SOCIETY

In her October 2014 lecture, entitled 'Putting Lawrence on the Stage', the Doctor discusses two fairly recent stage productions, one of which is Lorenzo and Lady C - the other being a Greek multimedia production that incorporates elements from Lawrence's Women in Love and some other of his writings.

LADY CHATTERLEY SONG PERFORMED IN NEW PUB OF SAME NAME

June 2014 saw the opening of a new pub in Lawrence’s hometown of Eastwood, England. It has been appropriately named The Lady Chatterley.

Glyn Bailey was asked by the D.H. Lawrence Society to perform two songs from Lorenzo and Lady C. He chose 'Lady Chatterley’s Lover', of course, and 'Country of My Heart' (the name Lawrence gave to the countryside around Eastwood). They were extremely well-received by the guests, which included the Mayor of Eastwood.
