LR Productions Ltd, co-produced by Theatre by the Lake, in association with imPOSSIBLE Producing Ltd, present SWIM, a tender tale based on a true story.

“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 on 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 video projection, SWIM is a tender tale based on a true story.

Written and performed by Liz Richardson (Gutted), SWIM is premiering at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, in spring 2022 ahead of a rural and UK theatre tour, including Rosehill in April 2022.
