National Theater Live in HD:
Terence Rattigan’s The Deep Blue Sea

Helen McCrory returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece.

High-Definition Broadcasts from National Theare, London. Presented in partnership with the Michigan Theater.

A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer 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.

Helen McCrory (Medea and The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre) returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke (War and Peace, The Musketeers) also features in Carrie Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production.

This performance is 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes an intermission.
