Wild Swimming: a brief and benighted history. Nell and Oscar meet on a deserted beach in Dorset. It's 1595... or maybe it’s 1610. Oscar has returned from his first term at university and Nell is doing f*ck all. They will meet here, again and again, on this beach... for the next 400 years. Stuff will change. As it does with time. They will try to keep up.

Presented by Full Rogue in association with The Pleasance and Bristol Old Vic Ferment.

Supported by Pleasance Futures as part of the Regional Theatre Partnership Programme with Bristol Old Vic
