Genre: Comedy, Drama
by Daniel MacIvor, Directed by Jason Fraser

In "NEVER SWIM ALONE," two lifelong male friends are on a beach taking part in a series of masculinity contests refereed by a beautiful young woman in a bathing suit. As the competition intensifies in brutality and the two men bloody each other both physically and verbally, the woman takes them closer and closer to finally confronting a long-hidden tragedy that's haunted them throughout their adult lives.

In the satirical "THIS IS A PLAY," three actors are performing in a dreadfully written stage drama.But rather than the dialogue from the play, we hear the actors' innermost thoughts about such subjects as the lame script they've been given, their less-than-adaquate fellow thespians and the general horrors of a life in the theatre.

About the Company: The Bridge Theatre Company

Founded in 2004, The Bridge Theatre Company is a New York City-based ensemble of Canadian and American theatre artists dedicated to the cross-border development, workshop and production of new plays.  The company examines the relationship between these two contemporary theatrical cultures through the work of emerging playwrights, actors and directors.  Through its New Play Development program, the Bridge accepts a wide variety of script submissions from writers in the United States and Canada, hoping to discover and develop new plays that may examine everything from the bridges between two nations to the bridges between two people.  For more information, visit
