Welcome to the Carney Hook Marina Motel, where four would-be criminals are cooking up the heist of a lifetime. It's summer, 1984, and Eddie has a plan to steal two million dollars off a boat in the Chesapeake Bay – now he just needs a crew to pull it off. But when these schemers and dreamers collide with three tough and sultry broads, the course to a fortune is threatened by more than bad weather. THE LADY SWIMS TODAY is a drama in the tradition of Bogart and Bacall in Key Largo, with film noir shadows and flashes of comedy.
The cast of THE LADY SWIMS TODAY includes three "Sopranos" stars: Robert Funaro (Ridley Scott's upcoming film American Gangster, Dread Awakening), Maureen Van Zandt (Danny Aiello's upcoming film Anyone's Son), and Suzanne DiDonna ("Sex and the City"), as well as William Fowle, Gordon Silva, Kelli K. Barnett, and Jack Rodgerson.
Writer/Director H.G. Brown is the author of The Gargoyle, which won the Norman Corwin Prize at San Diego State University and was later produced for television, starring David McCallum; as well as Play Sinatra at the American Theater of Actors. He is the director of the plays Slow Dance On the Killing Ground and The Dock Brief in San Francisco, as well as Stepping Down for WAMU-FM Radio in Washington, D.C.
