Event Notes

× Awarded NOW's "Best of the Fest" at the 2018 SummerWorks Performance Festival for outstanding production, direction, ensemble, and design, NOWADAYS THEATRE is pleased to present in partnership with Alma Matters Productions SWIM TEAM at The Theatre Centre November 8-17th.

Inspired by real stories from the world of women’s sports in post-revolutionary Iran, Swim Team follows three women who are determined to learn to swim in a place devoid of water. When their coach transforms her small apartment into a training facility, they soon discover how difficult it is for a woman to achieve her dreams, even in her imagination.
