Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
April 9-May 3
Set in a rundown bar in the Bronx, two of society's rejects, Danny, a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason, and Roberta, a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents, strike up a conversation over a beer. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call "the beast," seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving a family member, is distrustful of men in general. As their initial reserve begins to melt, they decide to spend the night together, which each hopes will bring the possibility of a genuine and meaningful relationship.
