Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team,
set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands,
kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up,
laugh and meddle in each other's lives. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB focuses on four of those weekends
and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to
maintain her organized and "perfect" life, and continues to be the group's leader. Dinah, the
wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark
contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined
to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married—over and over
and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that
hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please
Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives
unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous
repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life
flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends,
proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally 'round their own with the strength and love that
takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is the story of these
five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
"The Dixie Swim Club" is presented by special arrangement with DRAMATISTS PLAY SERVICE
