in the Theatre Upstairs
The Deep Blue Sea
by Terence Rattigan
directed by Pat Boxall
Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt. The story of her tempestuous affair with a wartime fighter pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court Judge begins to emerge - with it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long repressed passion.
Terence Rattigan’s 1950’s masterpiece is an unforgettably moving portrayal of the destructive power of love and the emotional turmoil of a woman who has dared to challenge the stifling and unforgiving morality of post war British society.
