My first play review since lockdown! Review of Terence Rattigan’s THE DEEP BLUE SEA at the National Theatre in 2016 (linked). This started live streaming on YouTube on 9th July, and is available now.  It’s a detailed review which also continues and  discusses live theatre v streamed recordings, and also the comparison with the Chichester 2019 production and the difference in the theatres.
