The Art of Swimming

THE ART OF SWIMMING, an American premiere by Lynda Radley

Presented by Tiny Dynamite as a part of our A PLAY A PIE AND A PINT series.

December 6-17

Wednesdays-Sundays 6:30pm + added dessert show Saturdays 9:30pm

At our NEW VENUE: Headhouse Cafe, 122 Lombard St, Philadelphia

$20 includes the show, a slice of pizza, and a beer (or soda).

New this season! Reserved seating for full tables of 4 or 6–limited availability!

A single actor takes us on an imaginative adventure to rediscover the story of Mercedes Gleitze, one of the great athlete-celebrities of her time. In 1927, after 26-year-old Gleitze successfully swims the 20-mile crossing of the frigid English Channel, an even greater challenge emerges. Detractors—skeptical of women’s athleticism—claim her achievement is a hoax, setting Gleitze on a course that would forever change both her life and the perceptions of women in sports. Told with inventive props, enchanting surprises, and accompanied by live music, The Art of Swimming will inspire anyone who has ever tested the motto, “Nothing great is easy.”
