Dixie Swim Club

February 6 - March 1


The story of a bond that lasts forever



Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

In a remote estate in the countryside of Connecticut, Jack Brooks, one of the most accomplished and eccentric painters of his generation, awaits the imminent arrival of his art dealer. But the visit is not a standard one, for Jack feels wronged, and he is intending to kill the man. As Jack lays out of his intentions for the evening, his wife, Annie, calmly paints. She is reluctant to go along with the plan, until Jack's flamboyant art dealer arrives. Will Jack carry out his plan? Will Annie help him? Or is something else going on?

This is a comedy, dark as it may be. A cast of four. Jack Brooks, somewhere in his late forties or fifties, preferably less than six feet tall, somewhat arrogant and definitely eccentric. Annie Brooks, several years younger than Jack, dutiful, kept wife, also an artist. Vincent Cummings, a top shelf, very flamboyant art dealer. Age not relevant. And Kate, in her 20s, an Irish immigrant, working as the Brooks' maid.
 
It's an exciting ride of "Who done it"? and "Who got done"? An adult play.
 
*Annie must be prepared to kiss both men.
