Sedona Film Festival hosts big-screen debut of new production at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (October 17, 2016) – The National Theatre of London continues its season with the intoxicating classic drama “The Deep Blue Sea” showing in Sedona on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 3 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Helen McCrory (Medea and The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke (War and Peace, The Musketeers) also features in Carrie Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production.
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. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
Critics are raving about “The Deep Blue Sea”, and it has garnered 4- and 5-star reviews from every major publication in London:
