Terence Rattigan’s ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ tells the story of Hester Collyer, the young wife of the High Court Judge William Collyer, who has embarked on a passionate affair with Freddie Page, a handsome young former RAF pilot troubled by his memories of the war. Their relationship is physical and passionate, but his ardour has cooled, leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate. Taking place over the course of one day we witness her battle as she struggles to come to terms with her situation and to find a reason to go on living. Will she return to William or will Freddie relent, and how will the interactions with others in the apartment block affect her circumstances and decision?
