I’m so scared. And yet… I’m also looking… Just in case I see her… Even though by now there wouldn’t be that much to see…

Two sisters. One dream. The hardest open-water swim in the world.

This triumphant play from Olivier Award winning Morgan Lloyd Malcolm moves forwards and backwards in time across the 21 miles between Dover and Calais as a young swimmer harnesses her mind and body to make the crossing.

With grief and joy, 90’s pop-songs and lists, oil tankers and jelly babies, love persists whatever the distance, and however perilous the journey to the other side.


Running time: approx 75 minutes
