National Theatre at Home: The Deep Blue Sea

National Theatre at Home: The Deep Blue Sea

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre and Arts Orange County at Online/Virtual Space

A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952.

When Hester Collyer (Helen McCrory) is found by her neighbors 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.

Stream here from July 9 -15, 2020
