Hester abandons the security and respectability of life with her distinguished older husband, throwing herself into a passionate affair with former RAF pilot Freddie. His raffish charm wears thin, but Hester remains infatuated. With overpowering feelings for Freddie and with her husband ready to forgive, Hester finds herself caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Terence Rattigan’s 1950s masterpiece portrays the emotional turmoil of a woman defying convention and the destructive power of love. Brought to you by the team behind Of Mice and Men and All My Sons, The Deep Blue Sea promises to be unforgettably moving.
