Overview

This beautifully written play is set chiefly on Lawrence's New Mexico ranch between the years 1922-45, and also in the present. It centres on the extraordinary personality of Lawrence who inspires fierce loyalty in the women around him and love between Freida and Lawrence which survives the conflict of their two strong characters and the pain of Lawrence's last years. This is observed and commented on by a professor and his four studen's, involved both inside and outside the action.
