The Deep Blue Sea

Nick Hern Books have just republished my edition of The Deep Blue Sea with my general introduction and a special introduction by Sean O’Connor, the producer of the new film adaptation, written and directed by the wonderful Terence Davies. O’Connor is also the author of Straight Acting: Popular Gay Drama from Wilde to Rattigan, which drew on a couple of my early Rattigan editions, so that nicely completes a circle. It’s a lovely-looking edition, with Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston smouldering icily on the front.
