Description

San Diego’s newest theatrical group Different Stages is moving into The AVO Playhouse for eight performances of the hilarious bittersweet comedy The Dixie Swim Club, written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. This play is making successful runs around the country and is now making its San Diego area premiere.

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August at a beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to recharge those relationships. The play 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 that life flings at them.

The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever. The Dixie Swim Club is geared for general audiences; if you enjoyed Steel Magnolias and Fried Green Tomatoes, this might be just right for you.  The play deals with marriage, sex, parenting, divorce and aging that will touch your funny bone and your heart for both men and women.

The play features local actresses Naomi Olson, Sharon Kloosterman, Lailani Dana, Joanne Kissinger and Sandy Agan.  The production is directed by Jerry Pilato.
