To love with one’s eyes open sometimes makes life very difficult.
GUTS brings Terence Rattigan’s heartwrenching and most-celebrated play to the Groningen stage. The Deep Blue Sea, set in England in the 1950s, highlights the struggles and despair of a failed marriage, of infidelity and in particular the question of identity with brutal and raw honesty.
Hester Collyer fails at attempting suicide. She struggles to find her social position after leaving the dependable husband who loves her for a brazen, younger man who doesn’t love her as much as she loves him. In the aftermath of her attempt she finds an unlikely ally.
Despite its setting, the themes are timeless and universal as we are ever in need to define ourselves and our social positions.
