Hubby via e-mail hubby@interport.net, March 20, 1997; the citation says,

  §  Dramatis Personae Lawrence (m); Frieda (f); Bertha Brett (f)

  §  Synopsis . . . . We see Lawrence at the very end of his career, in fact the very day he dies, and recognize him as the erratic, inspired, ill-tempered genius who was never able to come to terms with life.

  §  Comment The author refers to his work as imaginary. The basic facts, however, are well known. . . . [D. H. Lawrence, English novelist, 1885-1930] stands revealed here as the man who, in Mr. Williams words, felt the mystery and power of sex, as the primal life urge, and was the life-long adversary of those who wanted to keep the subject locked away in the cellars of prudery.    Can pair with I Cant Imagine Tomorrow, a bare-stage drama, 1m; or A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot, a comedy, 1m2f + 2 non-speaking m extras).

  §  Themes biography, celebrity, death, dominance, genius, sex, roman a clef.
