High school swimmer Amy is in over her head, out of options and desperate for an ally. Luckily for her, Ester is sick of treading water. With the clock running out, school pressures mounting and adulthood lurking dangerously close to the surface the unlikely friends struggle to keep afloat without pushing each other under.
Set almost entirely in the girls' locker room of a Florida high school, Spiegel’s acclaimed play takes an unflinching and authentic look at the complexities of female friendship, abortion, adolescents' in crisis and the terrifying process of becoming yourself.
Directed by Marian Kansas
Produced by Lindsey Markham
Featuring: Brandi Gist, Lindsey Markham, Alani Chock, Brennan Patrick and Tom Swift
