About this show

Set in England during the first decade of the 20h century, Sons and Lovers dramatizes the early years of the spirited and lyrically inspired writer D.H. Lawrence as he charted his course from a Midlands coal mining town into the larger world. The story portrays his parents' turbulent, mismatched marriage, his own first affairs of the heart, and his mother's jealousy about the women he brought into his life. In the process, Lawrence developed his views on the mystical role of sexuality in shaping the soul and the power of determined creativity to overcome dark circumstances.
