A play about three people trying to survive the ‘aftershocks’ of world events. In a pool in New Zealand, recent emigrant Maeve is learning to swim. A ‘swimaholic’ coach Doreen spurs her on. But even as she battles the water, Maeve’s heart is calling her home - to an unresolved dilemma  with her much-loved father Johnny. Journey with Maeve as she tries to swim free from the ties that bind. **** Three-hander about learning about life through learning to swim is spellbinding.

Spellbinding  script… inventive use of space with sculpted sound and lighting that follow the action with split-second timing. The Stage ****Learning to swim becomes the metaphor for survival in this fine, understated play, through the subtle clarity of the writing and the wonderfully judged performances. Irish Times **** A captivating, intelligent and deeply moving production. Orla Murphy shows she has some serious talent - The Irish Examiner
