About this show

A young boy takes a lesson from his mother, a swimming coach. Life passes in laps, things change and the boy teaches his mother to dance. As their own stories intertwine and swell like a rising tide, the bonds of familial love are revealed to the sultry tones of Nat King Cole. Performed by acclaimed Irish choreographer David Bolger (H.M.S. Pinafore) and his 78-year-old mother Madge, this award-winning production is told with affectionate humor, as a gentle and joyful celebration of the things we pass on and the things we inherit.
