National Theatre Live: Deep Blue Sea

Oct 16, 2016, 2pm
Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece contains one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester 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. Runtime: 2 hours 30 mins. $15 for Museum Members and students with ID (does not include Museum general admission), $18 for non-Members.  Purchase tickets at tickets.phxart.org
