About the event

Ages 12+

“A mere ditch that shall be leaped” (Napoleon)

Twenty-one miles (as the gull flies) to France. So near yet so far.
Flash-back to a golden age of bathing. Channel fever grips the nation.
Our foolhardy romantic emerges from her ‘modesty’ hut to join the Channel swimmers. Dollops of goose fat and a glint of foolhardy eccentricity. Flash-forward, will it go swimmingly or will the tide turn?

Expect one woman, witty physical theatre and inventive use of props all from the depths of her bathing hut.

This is a gloriously absurd tribute to The Channel.

Presented by Sarah Corbett

“A cracking mix of truth and tall tale”
Ignite Festival

“Comic timing is everything. This is cleverly choreographed physical theatre delivered with reassuring polish.”
Emily Keene, Ignite Festival

“Witty physical theatre at its finest. Go and see it.”
We Are Brontë Bristol 24/7
