About the event

Marta Dusseldorp stars in this beautiful, humanist drama about loss, longing and having the courage to want more.

It’s 1952 in post-Blitz London and Hester Collyer’s life is in turmoil. She has gambled everything – her home, her status, her marriage to a High Court judge – to pursue a life with the dashing RAF fighter pilot Freddie, and she has lost. Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea suddenly looks very inviting. But Hester is determined to forge her own path in a repressive age.

Terence Rattigan was one of the great stage and screen writers of the twentieth century and The Deep Blue Sea is one of his master works. In Hester, he has created one of the most striking heroines of his era: strong-willed, unconventional and complex.
