Never Swim Alone is an intense drama that is based on a competition between childhood friends, Frank (Garrett Prejean) and Bill (Nicholas Stephens). The lifeguard (Tenea Intriago) referees the competitive interplay between the two men. The play begins with friendly contests such as who is best dressed and who is the tallest; but the competition intensifies quickly. Flashbacks reveal a tragedy that the two young boys are still grappling with today; Bill witnessed Frank’s wife cheating on him with their mutual friend, Phil. This ignites the drama which grows and builds until it becomes violent. This is no longer fun and games as it becomes about life and death. The audience needs to hold on to their seats as the action gets right in your face in this intimate theatre!
