A black comedy exploring female spaces and what happens when they are threatened by the outside world, from new theatre company, Daily Bread Theatre

A man’s body is found drifting in The Ponds, an apparently idyllic, female-only bathing space, hidden from sight by trees. Who he is, or how he got there is anyone’s guess.

During the police investigation, the characters of the women who swim and work there are gradually revealed and we start to get a glimpse of what goes on behind the trees. Like The Ponds, it seems, the women are full of secrets and not so picturesque as they appear on the surface.

This is not a murder mystery, rather an exploration of female fantasy and spaces and what happens when they are disrupted.

“Scintillating set of characters and witty writing … perfect fusion of comedy and meaning.”
