Waves - Created by Alice Mary Cooper

Wednesday 17th May @ 2.00pm


A delight for audiences from 8 to 80. Waves is the story of Elizabeth Moncello: of her youth growing up on a small Australian island in the 1930s and how she came to be the unofficial inventor of the butterfly stroke in swimming. An intimate theatrical event combining highly expressive storytelling, delicate movement and splashes of humour to tell Elizabeth's amazing tale of a life fully lived. Waves is about having an idea and the courage, drive and desire to follow it through - to swim against the tide of history and expectations, and to achieve something that is truly incredible.
