Details

Phoenix Rising was first performed at Nottingham Playhouse as part of the International D. H. Lawrence Centenary Festival in September 1985 and returns to its roots to mark the 130th anniversary of Lawrence’s birth. Paul Slack reprises his critically acclaimed performance as D. H. Lawrence.

“This is a performance of great skill and dexterity by an extremely gifted and talented actor.”
BBC

“A powerhouse performance.”
Adelaide Advertiser

Written and directed by Nottingham playwright Campbell Kay, Phoenix Rising is set in the year 1928 at the Ile de Port-Cros, Var, in France where Lawrence and his wife Frieda are living on a small island off the Southern French coast. Lawrence is a very ill man and less than two years from his own untimely death. An unexpected letter from David Chambers, the brother of his early and influential muse Jessie (Miriam in Sons and Lovers), spurs D. H. Lawrence to reminisce about his early life… aeons away!

“Writer Campbell Kay and actor Paul Slack have combined to make a small gem…Kay’s writing which is vigorous and utterly compelling is splendidly served by Slack.”
Alan Geary, Nottingham Post

“Kay swoops like a magpie into a wide range of Lawrence’s work picking up a jewel every time.”
The Stage

“A moving and skillfully scripted piece.”
Sir Derek Jacobi
