About

Airswimming is coming to The White Bear Theatre (Kennington, South London).

17th - 21st October 2023.

This dark comedy is set in the England after the First World War, and is inspired by the lives of two women, Miss Kitson and Miss Baker, who were each in locked away in a hospital for the “criminally insane”, one for wishing to dress like a man and the other for bearing an illegitimate child. United by circumstance, they were not released until the 1970s. The fluid timeline flows between the harsh linear world of the hospital and a world of their imagination. By turns funny, chilling and moving, Airswimming reminds us of the cruelly treated, forgotten women of these generations.
