Losing Lawrence explores the mystery surrounding the remains of D.H. Lawrence five years after his death. His widow, Frieda, has returned with his ashes from Europe to find her two friends – and former rivals for his affection -- cleaning her house in time for the tasteful memorial service they have planned. But their plan runs counter to Frieda's. What follows is a series of plot twists as they struggle over the decision of how best to honor him. Added to the mix is a young, ambitious reporter trying to learn the truth about Lawrence that is buried between the innuendos and accusations leveled by the women against each other. Set in New Mexico in 1930, the play explores the complicated relationship of these three women as they attempt to hide a terrible secret in order to protect a famous writer's reputation.
