The Art of Swimming

Philly theater troupe Tiny Dynamite’s clever series A Play, a Pie and a Pint—which takes place in a bar and grants each ticket holder a theater performance, beer and a slice of pizza—returns with the story of Mercedes Gleitze (played by Lee Minora), a 1920s athlete who obliterated people’s perception of women in sports when she swam 20 miles across the frigid English Channel. Actor and composer Daniel Ison plays live music throughout each performance.
