Airswimming by Charlotte Jones

August 26, 2017
8:00 pm
Dragon Theatre

This poignant drama by Charlotte Jones (Humble Boy, Dragon 2007) takes place in England in the 1920s. It is the somewhat true story of two women who were locked up in a hospital for the “criminally insane” because they had children out of wedlock. Forgotten by their families, they stayed imprisoned for more than forty years. To pass the time, Dora and Persephone create alter-egos, Dorph and Porph, and act out fantastical stories under the watchful eye of St. Dymphna, patron saint of the mentally ill. A tribute to both Doris Day and the forgotten women of this generation in Ireland and England, Airswimming is ultimately a tribute to the resilience of the female spirit. Directed by Executive Artistic Director Meredith Hagedorn and featuring Katie Anderson as Persephone/Porph Annamarie MacLeod as Dora/Dorph Pay what you will preview on Thurs., Aug. 3rd at 8p Opening night performance with post-show reception on Fri., Aug. 4th at 8p Post-show discussion with the cast and director Sun., Aug. 13th
