“…gently disarms you, warms you with its affectionate humour and beguiles you with the mood of shared reverie.” ***** Herald Scotland ***** ”…this already highly successful and award winning show is, as the Nat King Cole song in the show says, Unforgettable.” Irene Brown, The Edinburgh Guide on SWIMMING WITH MY MOTHER **** SWIMMING WITH MY MOTHER is a gorgeous duet that induces both tears and laughter…….A swimming teacher her whole life, Madge also loves dancing and Bolger’s choreography perfectly brings the two together. Kelly Apter, The Scotsman **** The dynamics of the mother-son relationship are not just an end in themselves but open up a meditation on what it means to pass on a skill you love, or a joy in movement. A gentle, joyful, intergenerational gem. Lizzie Steward, The Shimmy Skinny The companionship of mother and son seeped onto the stage in David Bolger’s wonderfully gentle, perfectly formed duet…..

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy.
