A show about outdoor swimming, community and holding each other.

“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.

Written and performed by Liz Richardson (Gutted) and featuring live music and video projection, sell-out theatre piece SWIM returns for a final UK tour.
