National Theatre At Home – The Deep Blue Sea
July 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Tonight’s performance is The Deep Blue Sea.
Helen McCrory plays Hester Collver in this production of Terence Rattigans’s play ’ The Deep Blue Sea’. Streaming for 7 days from 7pm on Thursday 9th July.
Set in a flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London in 1952.
When Hester Collyer (Helen McCrory) is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF 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. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
