After a critically acclaimed run at Theatre N16, Danny And The Deep Blue Sea comes to The Old Red Lion.
“But I kept lookin at the ocean. So deep and blue. And different. It was different then.”
Two castaways, Danny and Roberta, fight their way to each other in a sea of hardship and cling violently for a chance at the happiness afforded to most but denied to them. Here lie the ingredients that make us human: the need to be heard, understood, loved and accepted, and the fear of not being any of them. New York is many things, but forgiving is not one of them.
Against the backdrop of a rundown bar in the Bronx, John Patrick Shanley’s classic play Danny And The Deep Blue Sea is an explosive and deeply affecting study of alienation and the redemptive power of love. It is directed by Courtney Larkin and stars Gareth O’Connor and Megan Lloyd-Jones.
Danny And The Deep Blue Sea plays the Old Red Lion Theatre from 6 – 24 June. For more information and to book tickets, please visit the website.
