Envious of his best mate's care-free life and wild nights out, Dan suddenly splits up from his long -term girlfriend.
Unexpectedly, he soon falls head over heels for Sam after a chance meeting at the pool. But for reasons he cannot explain or admit to himself, Dan keeps their new relationship a secret.
Over the hot summer months, as they fall deeper in love and the truth comes out, Dan is forced to confront his prejudices and fears and ask if he must choose a lane in life.
Funny, frank and sexy, SWIMMING returns to the White Bear after a sell out run in 2019 to tussle with big, twenty-first century questions around choice, taboos, and the conflict of identity.
