Airswimming – RTP

By | March 31, 2024
A Comedy about Despair
directed by Mel Rayford

Set in 1920’s England, Airswimming is based on the true story of two women, who have been incarcerated in a hospital for the “criminally insane” for having borne illegitimate children. Forgotten by their families and not released until the 1970’s, Dora (Kendall Walker)  and Persephone (Calie Bain) adopt alter-egos, Dorph (Jan Guarino) and Porph (Patricia Austin), to enact their fantasies and survive the silence of incarceration. By turns very funny and moving, Airswimming reminds us of the forgotten women of these generations in both Britain and Ireland.
