About The Event
Aubrey Plaza and Christopher Abbott reunite onstage for the Off-Broadway event of the fall, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. This dark and devastating play by Oscar winner John Patrick Shanley will run for 10 weeks only.
This is must-see theatre at its best, as these powerhouse actors lead this searing production about sparring, unlikely lovers. See these performers like you’ve never seen them before in a play The New York Times called “the equivalent of sitting at ringside watching a prize fight.”
Jeff Ward directs this singular show about two outcasts grappling with traumatic pasts. When divorcée Roberta (Plaza) meets day laborer Danny (Abbott), their exchange could go any way, but what emerges surprises both of them. Danny and the Deep Blue Sea will open your heart and mind to the power, weight, and depth of humanity. Don’t miss your chance to see the play of the season.
More About the Show
In Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, the two characters delve into a bitter argument at a bar. Roberta is a single mother of a teenage son who spends her evenings partying, hoping to boost her self-esteem. Danny is a misunderstood loner who lives with his mother. The two strangers share their self-destructive habits and battles with addiction. As the characters excavate their deep darknesses, they make room for empathy.
Academy Award winner John Patrick Shanley wrote Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, his second play, in 1984. Shanley is known for the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt: A Parable, and writes searing dramas that explore complex, human topics. Danny and the Deep Blue Sea premiered at the Humana Festival of New Plays at the Actors Theatre of Louisville before debuting in downtown New York with the Circle in the Square Theatre.
