New show in development commissioned by HOME theatre Manchester, coming July 2019:
“The sensation of water
flowing around my body
happily floating down a river,
watching the banks pass me by.
I like to take the same
journey as a river
it’s the lack of control
which feels so good,
it’s good to leave my
life alone for a while.”
Liz grew up in the Lake District. She spent her childhood walking in the fells, playing in the lakes and in the river at the end of her garden. After time away living in the City, Liz returns to the hills and into a new village for a new chapter of her life. But when her new community is rocked by tragedy, Liz rediscovers outdoor swimming and how it can keep both her and her new friends afloat. Filled with humour and heart, live music and projection, SWIM is a tender tale based on a true story.
SWIM has been redeveloped and is a co-production between Theatre By The Lake & LR Productions in association with imPOSSIBLE Producing.
SWIM is booking for the next tour in Spring 2023. Please get in touch to book.
