In The Dixie Swim Club five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The play focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree (played by Marla Taylor), the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and "perfect" life, and continues to be the group's leader. Dinah (Ruth Seefeldt), the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie (Lisa Porter), pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married—over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette (Tami Ellis), is acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal (Leta Rector) experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. 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 (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, and aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…
Director Megg Hayhurst has been a bright spot on our stage in Honeymoon at Graveside Manor and Pride and Prejudice; this will be her debut as a Director here at the BACP. She has assembled a stellar veteran cast of actresses who are sure to bring these vivid and diverse characters to life on our stage. We hope you will join us in the love, laughter and celebration of friendship.
