Swifter, Higher, Stronger
1st - 4th April
Studio 1, Dartington Hall
This is a play about Olympic women through time. Set in a London changing room, it unites six female athletes of the 1908, 1948 and 2012 Olympics. Based on real women, who won and lost, this is a play about sport, sacrifice and success. Madge Syers was the 1908 gold medallist in figure skating, and Lottie Dodd won the silver in archery. Dottie Tyler and Dorothy Manley were both athletes at the austerity games of 1948. How do they compete with the women of 2012 and 2020? Their sporting worlds are different, but their ambition for success is shared. Together they portray the power, determination and hopes of Olympic athletes – past, present and future.
