Danny and the Deep Blue Sea

Megan Lloyd-Jones
John Patrick Shanley’s classic play is an explosive, deeply affecting study of alienation and the redemptive power of love. Two castaways, Danny and Roberta, fight their way to each other and cling violently in a sea of hardship for a chance at the happiness afforded to most but denied to them. Here lies the ingredients that make us human: the need to be heard, understood, loved and accepted, and the fear of not being any of them. New York is many things, but forgiving is not one of them.
What the Press are saying about @DDBSLondon:
★★★★★ Act Drop
“Perfectly cast with both actors turning in exceptionally convincing and emotional performances, this is a powerful and compelling piece, and highly recommended.”
★★★★ The Stage
“Megan Lloyd-Jones plays Roberta with an extraordinary, fragile ferocity.”
“Intense performances energise this revival”

★★★★ Arthur’s Seat

“Megan Lloyd-Jones’s portrays of the character Roberta was at once both charming and unnerving.”
“So complete was Lloyd-Jones’s characterisation that it never felt like an actor affecting an emotion. It was more like just watching a person existing (in the best possible way)”

★★★★ Theatre Weekly

“Megan Lloyd-Jones, as Roberta, also gives a powerful performance. Her desperation for some kind of forgiveness, indeed punishment, just comes pouring out in a wave of emotion.”
