Since 2014 Dr Andrew Harrison and Professor James Moran have engaged with a range of internal and external partners to stimulate a fresh appreciation of D. H. Lawrence's life, work and legacy.

Project outreach

The team have undertaken outreach activities with a number of organisations, including: 

  • undertaking consultancy work with regional and national theatres staging Lawrence's work (e.g. Nottingham Lakeside Arts, Nottingham Playhouse, Lace Market Theatre, National Theatre);
  • organised and implemented annual Lawrence-themed drama workshops with pupils from Hall Park Academy in Eastwood and arranged and overseen public performances of their work;
  • and collaborated with high-profile media partners, discussing Lawrence's life and work on BBC Radio Nottingham and on the BBC TV programme 'Books that Made Britain' and BBC television series including 'Flog It!', 'Great British Railway Journeys', and 'Bargain Hunt'.

Drama workshops

Jim Moran and Andrew Harrison delivered a series of Lawrence-themed drama workshops engaging with secondary school students.

The workshops ran in spring/summer 2019 with year 9/10 pupils from Hall Park Academy and NUSA (Sarah Stephenson of NUSA as Director), leading to a public performance entitled 'D. H. Lawrence and Nostalgia' at Nottingham Lakeside Arts, 4 October 2019.
