AMPHIBIANS by Steve Waters, based on an original idea and research by Cressida Brown, ran at the Bridewell Theatre in the heart of London. The patrons of the play were Sir Patrick Stewart and the Olympian Mark Foster.
Deep and disused under the Bridewell Theatre stage lies a forgotten Victorian swimming pool, the perfect and poignant landscape to stage Steve Waters' innovative psychological drama about the lives and fates of three former Olympic swimmers.
AMPHIBIANS was part of Offstage Theatre's ambitious Olympic Swimmer Project which is entirely inspired by the extensive, eloquent and emotionally revealing filmed interviews Artistic Director Cressida Brown has conducted with former Olympians.
AMPHIBIANS combined underwater footage from Pinewood Studios, complex choreography based on athletic exercises and music composed to the rhythm of swimming strokes
