NT Live – The Deep Blue Sea (12A)
Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece contains one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Starring Helen McCrory and Tom Burke. Helen’s performance has been widely acclaimed.
When Helen Collyer 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.
Thursday 1st September at 7.00 pm
