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.
Terence Rattigan was one of the great stage and screen writers of the twentieth century and The Deep Blue Seaone
of his master works. In Hester, he has created one of the most striking
heroines of his era: strong-willed, unconventional and complex.
After an almost decade-long absence from the STC stage, Marta Dusseldorp returns as Hester. She’s joined by Fayssal Bazzi (Mary Stuart) as the feckless Freddie, Brandon McClelland (Saint Joan), iconic performer Paul Capsis, John Adam, and Heath Ledger Award-winner Charmaine Bingwa making her STC debut.
Helmed by Associate Director Paige Rattray, The Deep Blue Sea is a beautiful, humanist drama about loss, longing, and having the courage to want more.
