Written in the early 1950s when Rattigan was at the height of his powers, The Deep Blue Sea is a powerful account of lives blighted by love - or the lack of it.

The play opens with the failed suicide of Hester Collyer (Peggy Ashcroft in the first production), who has deserted her husband for the raffish charms of an ex-fighter pilot. The play was sparked off by the suicide of a young actor, Kenneth Morgan, with whom Rattigan had himself been much in love.

Adapted into a film with Rachel Weisz - The Deep Blue Sea

Cast : 5M, 3F
