Wild Swimming, Paperback / softback Book


Nell and Oscar meet on a beach in Dorset. It's 1595... or maybe 1610. Oscar has returned from university and Nell is doing f**k-all.

They will meet here, again and again, on this beach for the next four hundred years.

Stuff will change. As it does with time. They will try to keep up. A kaleidoscopic exploration of cultural progress, Wild Swimming is an interrogation of gender and privilege, and a wilfully ignorant history of English Literature.

The play premiered at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

It subsequently transferred to the Bristol Old Vic, and toured the UK in 2020.
