‘Danny and the Deep Blue Sea’ play by John Patrick Shanley is going to be staged by The Cross Bronx Crew at The Junction, Dubai on May 20 – 22, 2021.

Danny & The Deep Blue Sea is a dark comedy about two individuals meeting at a very trying period of time in their life. One of them is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason. Another one is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents. When they meet in a bar as rundown as they are one fateful night, their conversation leads to an exorcism, offering a future touched, at last, with hope.

 

Taking place over the course of one day, the play begins with the discovery of Hester Collyer in her flat by her neighbors, after Hester has failed in an attempt to take her own life by gassing herself. In flashback, sometime before, Hester left her husband, Sir William Collyer, a respectable High Court judge, for a semi-alcoholic former RAF pilot, Freddie Page. Their relationship was physical and passionate, but his ardor eventually cooled, leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate.

Initially unemployed, Freddie eventually takes a post in South America. The aftershocks of her attempted suicide unravel even the remnants of this relationship. By the end of the day, Hester is brought to a hard decision to live, partly through the intercession of another resident of the tenement house, Mr. Miller, an ex-doctor struck off the register for an undisclosed reason. These two outcasts find a curious kinship.

Recommended age: 17 and above.
