Airswimming tells the tale of Persephone Baker’s and Dora Kitson’s incarceration in St. Dymphna’s Hospital for the Criminally Insane. United by circumstance, forgotten and abandoned by their families, the women form a bond and adopt alter-egos to escape the mundanity of life. With its homage to Doris Day, this dark comedy is finely balanced by the pathos of two women who have dared to birth illegitimate children. 

WonderIf is a new, brave and bold northern theatre company, which affords aspiring actors and designers their first opportunity to stage and tour amateur productions. Fuelled by imagination, innovation and true Mancunian grit, this young and innovative theatre company trains and supports the next generation of theatre creatives.

Celebrate International Women’s Week with Airswimming. A story of true friendship and a testament to the strength and resilience of women everywhere.
