A play about occupation, revolution and what the future holds for today’s youth.
One step away from disaster, there’s only one thing left to do: start swimming.
First staged by the Young Vic Taking Part department, Start Swimming was also performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017.
Ideal for schools, youth theatres and amateur companies to perform, James Fritz's Start Swimming demonstrates an innovative playwright at the top of his craft.
Start Swimming is also available in the collection Comment is Free & Start Swimming: Two Plays.
'both a caustic critique of contemporary society’s treatment of young people and an exploration of the role of language in the perpetuation and justification of the practices under critique'Exeunt Magazine
'theatrical and fun... radiates a puckishness and sense of mischief that mocks control systems even as it articulates their bleakness'Time Out
'raw and vivid... a powerful indictment of the situation in which many people find themselves'Scotsman
