Nell and Oscar meet on a beach in Dorset. It's 1595... or maybe 1610. Oscar has returned from university and Nell is doing f**k all. They will meet here, again and again, on this beach for the next 400 years. Stuff will change. As it does with time. They will try to keep up. A kaleidoscopic exploration of cultural progress, Wild Swimming is an interrogation of gender and privilege and a wilfully ignorant history of English Literature.
