Description - The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd by D. H. Lawrence

Trapped in a brutish marriage, Mrs Holroyd begins to wish her husband dead when she accepts the advances of another man. Resentment, anger, lust and betrayal ripple out to touch all the family. Written in 1911, first published in a revised edition in 1914, The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd is based on Lawrence's short story Odour of Chrysanthemums. Partly based on his parents' turbulent relationship and the effect it had on his early years, the play resonated with audiences despite the dark subject matter and the intensity of the drama. It was famously revived in a landmark production at the Royal Court directed by Peter Gill in 1968 and has since been filmed several times for television.
