The only way free is straight down.

Jay goes to the coast. To be alone. To drop the costume of his perfect life. His 20 year self-made career. His high-rise apartment. His stunning wife.

Crystal’s terrified of water. Won’t go within miles of an ocean view. Safe in the city. Working overtime. All the time climbing walls. It’s what we do.

Jay goes away three or four times a year. But there’s no other, no. ‘The coast is clear.’

The ocean is Jay’s solitude. His nemesis. His mother. His reflection. His whore.
Enter Suzanna Santiago, whirlwind gypsy who is all this and more.

Where do you go when you’ve climbed to the top, and the rules and the glass have been flipped around?

What do you do when you stare out to sea, and you see that the only way free is straight down?

Written by Julia Sutherland and inspired by the diversely different writings of Cohen and DiFranco, Swan Dive is a play in verse, a living novel and an homage to music. Language and landscape dance us daringly close to our own edges in this contemporary story, with themes as old as the human condition itself.

Paul Watson (Twelfth Night, Jersey Boys) directs the world premiere production of Swan Dive, starring Daniel Humphris (We Will Rock You, Flower Children), Fran Middleton (Duckhouse Theatre) and Julia Sutherland (Birthrights, Oleanna).
