Treading Water is a funny, heartwarming tale that combines classic end of pier comedy with Aykbourn-style dialogue.
It is currently on a small tour of the UK after playing at the 2018 Vault Festival.
It will then be heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Sue and Carol are lifeguards.
Their routine is simple and their dreams seem equally so as they spend their days keeping the morning swimmers, the day trippers, and the evening strollers safe.
Day after day they sit, they wait, and they watch the world go by.
But when your job is to watch, when do you get to live?
And what are they waiting for?
A sign of danger?
Maybe that's just what they need.
Each morning a lone figure appears on the sand.
The women watch, transfixed, as he wafts his equipment, listening for the beep.
If only there were a way to get him to come over.
If only there were a way to get him to say something.
