Set in England during the first decade of the twentieth 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.

 

Comments Director Mike Brayndick, "D.H. Lawrence was rhapsodic about the glories of our physical and spiritual being. He also provided an unstinting vision of human flaws. Written in 1913, Sons and Lovers has a very modern resonance dynamically revealing the tension between the desire for love and the need for a fulfilled individuality. This play tells the story from the perspective of his older self who ruefully relives the past he must constantly rediscover, while his younger self struggles to grow and be free in the present of a time-haunted life."

 

The production team includes Emma Brayndick and Pat Henderson (scenic design), Michele Brayndick (costume design), Tyler King (lighting design), Casey Brayndick and Andy Long (sound design), Steve Wisegarver (stage combat coach), Saren Nofs-Snyder (dialect coach), Joshua Simpson (intimacy coach), Ron Rude (technical director) and Andy Long (stage manager).
