When the Long Trick’s Over

By Morgan Lloyd Malcolm

Directed by Chinonyerem Odimba

running time: approx 75 minutes

__________________________________________

I’m so scared. And yet…I’m also looking. … Just in case I see her… Even though by now there wouldn’t be that much to see…

Two sisters. One dream. The hardest open-water swim in the world.

This triumphant play from Olivier Award winning Morgan Lloyd Malcolm moves forward(s) and backward(s) in time across the 21 miles between Dover and Calais as a young swimmer harnesses her mind and body to make the crossing.

With grief and joy, 90’s pop-songs and lists, oil tankers and jelly babies, love persists whatever the distance, and however perilous the journey to the other side.

Morgan was commissioned by The Globe to write Emilia which became a sell out in summer 2018 and transferred to the West End at the Vaudeville theatre in 2019.  It won three Olivier Awards in 2021 including Best Comedy or Entertainment.  It has been optioned as a film by Ardimages and she is in development on this currently.

Previous theatre includes Belongings and The Wasp. 

Currently she has two plays in production; Mum for Francesca Moody Productions, Plymouth Drum and Soho Theatre  and Typical Girls for Clean Break and Sheffield Crucible.


Full Price: £16*

Marina Card: £14

*plus an 85p booking fee per ticket
