Official The Deep Blue Sea with Helen McCrory | Free National Theatre at Home Full Performance

July 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - July 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

A brutal sense of loss and longing burns. Terence Rattigan’s devastating post-war masterpiece contains one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama.

Helen McCrory plays Hester Collyer and Tom Burke is Freddie Page. A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbors in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge.

With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Helen McCrory and director Carrie Cracknell reunite following the acclaimed Medea in 2014.

The Deep Blue Sea is streaming from 7pm UK time on Thursday 9 July until 7pm on Thursday 16 July. —

The running time is 2 hours 5 minutes with a very short interval.

The BBFC rating is 12A, due to depictions of suicide attempts and some strong language.
