Lady Macbeth

Showing: 17th March 2019

Rural North-East England 1865. Katherine is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age and by his cold and unforgiving family. When she is attracted to a young worker on the family estate she stops at nothing to fulfil her desires. Reverberating with ideas about the power structures of Victorian England – class, gender and race -the plot provides plenty of shocks. One critic described Katherine as ‘Lady Chatterley gone ballistic’!
