THE DEEP BLUE SEA COMES TO SYDNEY
Sydney Theatre Company will be performing Rattigan's exquisite mid-century drama at the Roslyn Packer Theatre from 4 February-7 March 2020.
It’s 1952 in post-Blitz London and Hester Collyer’s life is in turmoil. She has gambled everything – her home, her status, her marriage to a High Court judge – to pursue a life with the dashing RAF fighter pilot Freddie, and she has lost. Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea suddenly looks very inviting. But Hester is determined to forge her own path in a repressive age.
Directed by Roslyn Packer Associate Director Paige Rattray, the production stars Marta Dusseldorp as Hester, Fayssal Bazzi, Paul Capsis, John Adam, Vanessa Downing, Charlie Garber and Brandon McClelland.
