SWIMMING IN THE SHALLOWS

Genre: Comedy
Adam Bock

What do Buddhist Monks, a shark and a lesbian wedding have in common?  The answer can be found in Adam Bock’s Swimming in the Shallows.  Barb, Carla Carla, Donna and Nick are each searching for the thing that will bring them peace and happiness.  The comedy follows them on their quests through yard sales, dumps, recovery groups and aquariums.  Will they be brave enough to tear down the barriers that they have perhaps constructed themselves?
