Hester Collyer (Juliette Harrison) leads a privileged life in 1950’s London as the beautiful wife of high court judge Sir William Collyer (Keith Hartley). To the shock of those around her, she walks out on her marriage to move in with young
ex-RAF pilot, Freddie Page (Sam Moore), with whom she has fallen passionately in love.
Set in post-war Britain, Terence Rattigan’s classic play, The Deep Blue Sea is a study of forbidden love, suppressed desire, and the fear of loneliness – but is at heart a deeply moving love story. Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea, what – or whom – should Hester choose?
