About Danny and the Deep Blue Sea:

The year is 1984.  Set in a rundown bar in the Bronx, the play tells the story of two of society’s rejects, Danny and Roberta, two lost souls whom Chanley himself describes as “violent and battered, inarticulate and yearning to speak, dangerous and vulnerable.”

Danny is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason; Roberta is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents.  Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him “the animal,” seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving her father, is distrustful of men in general.  And yet, as their initial reserve begins to melt, and they decide to spend the night together, they explore the possibility of love – a first for both of them.

“…a funny, frightening, hypnotically fascinating evening of theatre…” —Drama-Logue.
