KOA Theater Presents Wild Swimming by Marek Horn
Directed by Kevin Keaveney
Assistant Director/Stage Manager Hulita Drake
Cast: Malia Wessel and Kelsey Baehrens
Nell and Oscar meet on a beach in Dorset. It’s 1595… or maybe 1610. Oscar has returned from university and Nell is doing fuck-all. They will meet here, again and again, on this beach for the next four hundred years. Stuff will change. As it does with time. They will try to keep up.
A kaleidoscopic exploration of cultural progress, Marek Horn’s play Wild Swimming is an interrogation of gender and privilege, and a willfully ignorant history of English Literature.
“Huge fun… a bold, anarchic and life-affirming celebration of progress and friendship… a thorough and empathetic interrogation of what it really means to move forward, told with spontaneity, honesty and creative flair.” —Broadway Baby
‘An irreverent exploration of gender dynamics… a charmingly wild piece of feminist theatre’
