AIRSWIMMING Closes this Weekend at Dragon Productions Theatre Company

There are only 4 more chances to catch Airswimming!

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. Regional premiere.
