Terence Rattigan's greatest play is a masterpiece of twentieth century drama. First performed in 1952, The Deep Blue Sea was inspired by the suicide of a young actor whom Rattigan had loved. This edition was reissued to coincide with Terence Davies' 2011 film version, a highly acclaimed cinematic triumph.
TERENCE RATTIGAN (1911-1977) hit the jackpot at the age of 25 with French Without Tears and followed this success with, among others, After the Dance, The Browning Version, The Deep Blue Sea, Separate Tables and The Winslow Boy. Most of Rattigan's plays are currently published in handsome uniform editions by Nick Hern Books, with life sales of several thousand to date.
