The Dixie Swim Club is the story of five Southern women, friends since their days on a college swim team, gather every year for a long weekend – no husbands, no kids, no work involvement– in a beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Here they laugh, catch up and meddle in each other’s lives. The women, whose lives have taken them in vastly different directions since they left college, help each other get through the challenges of life: motherhood, men, divorce, marriage, jobs, aging, with hilarious and touching repartee. As their lives unfold, we learn that true friendships last forever. The summer reading is held in the gallery at Marathon Community Theatre with open seating. Performances begin promptly at 8 p.m. Visit website for ticket information.
