Airswimming by Charlotte Jones
Time & Location
About the Event
1924: Persephone Baker is planning her coming-out ball at the Dorchester when she finds herself abandoned at St Dymphna’s Hospital for the Criminally Insane with only ‘unhinged, cigar-smoking, monomaniac transsexual’ Dora Kitson to keep her company. Forgotten for 50 years, Persephone and Dora escape to a surreal fantasy life enlivened by Doris Day, 2000 Bolshevik women, a Moulinex hand whisk and … Airswimming.
By turns funny and desperately sad, Airswimming is a story about friendship and the power of the imagination.

"Airswimming is a quirky, moving, funny & provocative play" – The Irish Echo
"The Structure and writing, clear and unsentimental, both trip the light fantastic - effortlessly gliding from the desperately funny to the desperately sad" - The Guardian
