Book Deep Blue Sea, The Tickets at the Vaudeville Theatre, London

About Deep Blue Sea, The

When you’re caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea can sometimes look very inviting, according to the heroine of Terence Rattigan’s 1952 study of obsession and the destructive power of love.

In this powerful drama of passion versus loyalty, Hester Collyer, the daughter of a clergyman and wife of a judge is foundering in the closing stages of a hopeless affair.

Freddie Page, her lover, a handsome but shallow ex-Battle of Britain pilot, is out of his depth in their relationship, overwhelmed by the strength of an emotion he is incapable of reciprocating.

This is a truly great evening in the West End” - Charles Spencer, Telegraph

Greta Scacchi gives the performance of her career as Terence Rattigan’s anguished heroine. A great performance in one of the greatest plays of the last century. - Charles Spencer, Telegraph

***** Miss Scacchi brings [Hester] alive in a harrowing and emotionally draining performance that I reckon is the finest piece of acting I have seen in a decade. - Tim Walker, Sunday Telegraph

Deeply moving revival - Charles Spencer, Telegraph

Scacchi is shatteringly fine - Charles Spencer, Telegraph

Greta Scacchi is outstanding […] It is a fearsomely meaty role and this outstanding actress embraces it with great ardour and compelling energy - Paul Callan, Daily Express

Miss Scacchi’s shrieking breakdown is gripping to watch - Paul Callan, Daily Express

Excellent production - Paul Callan, Daily Express

This is a mesmerising story of human failing - Ben Dowell, London Paper

The play belongs, however, to Miss Scacchi: I am haunted still by the pain etched on this woman’s extraordinarily beautiful and expressive face - Tim Walker, Sunday Telegraph
