An immersive experience of a hauntingly hilarious love story between two Beasts.
John Patrick Shanley’s Danny and the Deep Blue Sea follows a powerful self-loathing man and a passionately misunderstood woman, Danny and Roberta. In need of comfort, yet covered by bravado, they strike up a halting, yet hilarious, conversation over their beers. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him the Beast for his violent nature – seems to be incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, tormented by an ugly sexual experience with her Father, is distrustful of men in general. And yet, there is a possibility of hope. Through a barrage of vulnerability and violence, a meaningfully relationship is created – the first for both of them. John Patrick Shanley creates his Apache Dance – inarticulate and yearning to speak, dangerous and vulnerable, battered and reaching for love. Directed by Jana Lee Hamblin and performed by Lydia Reynolds and Edvin Walther.
