Emmy Award winner Greta Scacchi will return to the West End this spring in Edward Hall’s new production of Terence Rattigan’s 1952 drama The Deep Blue Sea, which transfers to the Vaudeville Theatre, April 29-July 5. The show, which will co-star Simon Williams and Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, is designed by Francis O’Connor, with lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by Matt McKenzie.
Foundering in the closing stages of a hopeless love affair, Hester Collyer (Scacchi), the daughter of a clergyman and wife of a judge, has abandoned her steady husband and life of affluence for a blind passion. But Freddie Page, a handsome but thoughtless ex-RAF fighter pilot, is out of his depth in their relationship, overwhelmed by the strength of a love he is incapable of reciprocating.
Scacchi’s stage credits include The Guardsman, True Life Fiction of Mata Hari, Uncle Vanya, In Times Like These, and Airbase. She is well known for her roles in films such as Presumed Innocent, White Mischief, Heat and Dust, Shattered, Jefferson in Paris, and Emma, and won an Emmy Award for the television film Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny.
