SigWorks: Swimming with Whales

by Bob Bartlett

June 26, 2017


While visiting his family’s secluded cottage on the lower Outer Banks of North Carolina, Owen, a typically urban fifteen-year-old boy, and his fisherman father clash until an unlikely and healing communion with an injured whale awakens in Owen a forgotten boyhood and connection with the sea.

Swimming with Whales is presented as part of SigWorks: Monday Night New Play Readings at Ali’s Bar, a new initiative which highlights and supports the work of DMV and regional playwrights. This series is an opportunity for playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and patrons to explore new plays in a fun and informal environment. For more information, visit our SigWorks page.
