‘When you’re caught between any kind of devil and the deep blue sea, the deep blue sea can sometimes look very inviting…’
Terence Rattigan’s modern masterpiece portrays a day in the life of Hester Collyer. Caught in a cobweb of decaying relationships – to her husband, her lover, her landlady, her neighbours – she remains alone and hopeless in a small, dishevelled London flat.
In this smart and simple production of one of the 20th century’s most moving tragedies, the biggest questions are explored in the most human way.
‘That word we were talking about just now. Shall we call it love? It saves a lot of trouble.’
