What’s On (Edmonton Fringe Festival): Never Swim Alone by Daniel MacIvor – Light in the Dark Theatre


We face a choice – compassion or competition? Frank and Bill, two egotistical men are caught in a constant one-upmanship for seemingly no reason. Never Swim Alone is an exploration of what happens when the desire to be first outweighs our compassion for others.

About Light in the Dark Theatre:

Light in the Dark is a company that believes light shines the brightest in the darkest of places. Therefore, we choose to share stories which illuminate hope, stories which make the glimmer of the world brighter, and stories which inspire an infectious flicker that continues to spread even after the curtain goes down. We bring theatre, as well as artistic learning opportunities to small towns in Alberta that have limited arts capabilities due to their physical location.
