The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd – Lace Market Theatre

The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd, a coalmining play written by DH Lawrence in 1910, is being shown at the Lace Market Theatre, Nottingham, from 13th to 18th November 2017.

Mrs Holroyd dreams of a better life for herself and her two children than a tiny cottage in a Nottinghamshire coalmining village and an uneasy marriage to a drunken, brutal husband.  Perhaps Blackmore, a colliery electrician and more refined character, will provide the means of escape…until tragic reality intervenes.  DH Lawrence’s 1910 play is a gritty reminder and exploration of what life was like for many in the heart of the Nottinghamshire Coalfield just over a century ago.

Contains mild sexual references and some violence.
