Review of Scandalous!


Glyn Bailey’s musical about the life of D.H. Lawrence, performed at the Bridewell Theatre in London, was entertaining, deeply felt, and ultimately moving – though somewhat trivial and misplaced in its criticisms of the Anglican Church, and not the kind of entertainment of which Lawrence himself would have approved.
