National Theatre of Great Britain series begins with “The Deep Blue Sea”

Sunday, April 9, 1 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Paramount Theatre will return to broadcasts in high-definition from the National Theatre of Great Britain with a three-play series beginning Sunday, April 9, 1 p.m. with Terrance Rattigan’s play “The Deep Blue Sea.” When Hester Collyer (Helen McCrory) 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 a post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.
The second broadcast will be Peter Shaffer’s “Amadeus,” April 15, 1 p.m. The series closes with Henrik Ibsen’s classic “Hedda Gabler” on May 7.
Tickets ($20 adults,$10 under 18) are available at the box office at 30 Center Street, Rutland; charge-by-phone at 802-775-0903 or online at paramountvt.org.
