Risteard Cooper talks about playing a dashing ex-flying ace in The Gate's revival of the Terence Rattigan classic, The Deep Blue Sea.
‘Few dramatists of this century have written with more understanding of the human heart.’ Says who? Britain’s Guardian newspaper. Of whom? British playwright Terence Rattigan, who died in 1977. Risteard Cooper certainly agrees, to a degree, with that assertion. He vividly remembers how the movie The Browning Version, based on Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy, “totally gripped” his heart when he originally saw it on TV.
The Deep Blue Sea opens at The Gate On April 15.
