Another great drama by John Patrick Shanley
It is human nature to be cautious when meeting someone for the first time and although your conversation may warm to each other, there are always somethings we may wish to keep to our self.
Written by John Patrick Shanley, "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" is a play about a man and woman who have both had a battered past and become volatile outcasts from society. They meet in a run-down bar in the Bronx and strike up a conversation, which eventually unravels everything in them. Through the conversation, they battle their pasts and each other trying to decide if they should lower their defences and risk being seen for their true self or continue going downhill in a destructive way. Just by meeting each other, nothing will ever be the same.
