Drama From London

At Guild Hall

National Theatre Live will return to Guild Hall with an encore screening of “The Deep Blue Sea,” a masterful drama by the English playwright Terence Rattigan, on Saturday evening at 8. 

Set in West London in 1952, the play centers on Hester Collyer, who is discovered by her neighbors following a failed suicide attempt, after which the details of her affair with a former R.A.F. pilot and the breakdown of her marriage begin to emerge. Directed by Carrie Cracknell, the production stars Helen McCrory as Hester, which is considered one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tickets are $18, $16 for members.

Guild Hall’s artXchange, a free celebration of cultural diversity, will take place Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. The family afternoon will include workshops led by visual and performing artists, a multilingual poetry reading, dance and music performances, and other activities aimed at fostering respect and interaction among the East End’s communities.
