The Deep Blue Sea

Tuesday, November 29 at 7:30 pm in the Estep: "The Deep Blue Sea," starring Helen McCrory. Run time: 2 hours 30 mins, including a 20 min.interval (ice cream will be served: free!).

Helen McCrory plays one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece in this recorded-live, 5-star 2016 National Theatre 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.

Come early for an Active Minds mental and emotional health informational session and Q&A, featuring: Jennifer Cox (MS, LPC), the Director of ECU's Student Counseling Center; and Susan Youngblood (MS, LPC), Clinical Counselor in ECU's Student Counseling Center. Finger foods and snacks will be served for those attending the meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Estep.
