Rob (02Mar20): I saw this at Malvern on Sat (29/2) with a small, but appreciative audience. A shame, because it deserved better. Of the several versions of LCL I’ve seen, I thought this was one of the most original, with the ghostly narrations particularly clever. While each and every one of the cast were excellent, the young woman who played the roles of a deceased nurse, Lady Chatterley’s sister and Mrs Betts deserves special mention for the incredibly different and effortless way she switched from one role to the next – a truly brilliant night, thank you.
