Aubrey Plaza and Christopher Abbott star in John Patrick Shanley's breakthrough play "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea," a searing portrayal of the imperceptible space between joy and pain.
The drama returns to New York's West Village for a limited time only with its enduring message about the importance of human connection. Don't miss the chance to see these powerhouse actors in this blistering two-hander. Plaza is Roberta, a divorcée with a teenage son, while Abbott plays Danny, a brooding loner who lives with his mother. Both are haunted by their pasts, and when the two strangers sidle up to a bar in the Bronx, they compare scars over beers. The unlikely pair uncover their deepest, darkest truths, carving out space for empathy — and maybe more.
"Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" is a gripping, early drama from John Patrick Shanley, the celebrated writer of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning "Doubt: A Parable."
