About the Program

This touching comedy centers around five Southern women who became friends on their college swim team. The group sets aside a long weekend every August to recharge their relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North

Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. The play begins 22 years after they graduate from college. “The Dixie Swim Club” focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce and aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of ‘teamwork’, rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. It is really a study in friendship and how it grows and changes through the years. Jones Hope Wooten are the authors of “Golden Girls” and “Savannah Sipping Society”

Meals & Fees

Choose your lunch from these options; braised boneless short ribs, seared pork chop, dill roasted tilapia or vegetarian pasta dish. Cost is $65.00 (includes transportation, lunch, tax, gratuity and theater ticket).
