FANS of playwright Terence Rattigan have been treated to a series of acclaimed film adaptations of his work over the past two decades — most recently Terence Davies’s 2011 take on The Deep Blue Sea, starring Rachel Weisz.

Now the play, which was first performed in March 1952, is returning to the stage for a month–long run at the Watermill Theatre, Newbury.

It tells the story of Hester Collyer, who abandons the security and respectability of life with her distinguished older husband and throws herself into a passionate affair with an RAF pilot.

The Deep Blue Sea is at the Watermill from Thursday, June 4, to Saturday, July 4. Tickets are priced £14.50 to £26.50. Call 01635 46044 or visit www.watermill.org.uk to book.
