The Deep by Jon Atli Jonasson
(Adapted and translated by Graeme Maley)
Supported by Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding
Based on a true story.
1999. The North Sea. A young fisherman who, in the midst of an unresolved life,finds his ship sinking under him.
Steeped in the heritage of the North East fishing communities, Graeme Maley’s adaptation of The Deep spins a touching tale of one man’s struggle for survival at sea. A beautiful and universal story of love in adversity.
Using live music, this one man monologue offers a compelling and unforgettable confrontation of what becomes important and relevant when lost at sea.
The Deep was originally written by Jon Atli Jonasson, based on a miraculous true ocean event off the coast of Iceland.
Joyce McMillan on The Deep:
“…moves brilliantly from the absurdity of life to the pain of losing it, from the trivial to the most profound”
