The Deep Blue Sea
“When you’re between any kind of devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea can sometimes look very inviting.”
Andrew MacDonald Smith
In a fit of passion, Hester Collyer has abandoned her marriage to Sir William Collyer in pursuit of an affair with ex-Spitfire pilot Freddie Page. In doing so, she has left the man who loves her but cannot show it for a man who cannot love her at all.
Rattigan’s twentieth century masterpiece “The Deep Blue Sea” is a beautiful, complex play depicting people blighted by love amidst the ruins of post-war England.
