Start Swimming

7th - 9th may 2020

by James Fritz

Directed by

Bethany West & Barney McElholm


‘It’s small versus big. It’s the pressures of the future. It’s everything being stacked against you and all options feeling equally terrible. A show about occupation, revolution and the future of our youth. One step away from disaster, there is only one instruction: start swimming.'


James Fritz’s challenging play asks what power young people have to affect change and resist authority. Bethany West & Barney McElholm (Resident Assistant Directors at Shakespeare’s Globe 2019) will co-direct and co-produce this blistering script for Playbox’s Studio.
