The Tivoli Theatre says
Helen McCrory (Penny Dreadful, Medea and The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre) returns in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece The Deep Blue Sea, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke (War and Peace, The Musketeers) also features in director Carrie Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production, recorded live in 2016. A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London, 1952. When Hester Collyer (McCrory) 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. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
