The Deep Blue Sea at Chichester Festival Theatre, June 21-July 27
It’s 1951. In her flat, Hester Collyer’s neighbours find her unconscious; she has taken an overdose in front of the gas fire. Their only option is to notify her husband...
But Hester left her husband to embark upon a passionate love affair with dashing ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page.
What has happened in her life to make her want to end it? And can she bring herself to go on living?
This play offers a devastating examination of the adverse forces of love and solitude. Rattigan based the play in part on the tragic outcome of his own clandestine love affair and created one of the twentieth century’s finest leading roles for a woman.
