Lent Week 4
Kenny Shallows has always dreamt of being a poolside lifeguard. But when he wangles a place on the prestigious lifeguarding course at Hardwater Leisure Centre (largest in Britain if you count the car park!) he finds he is a small fish in a big pond.
Hardwater throws every conceivable obstacle Kenny’s way, from kiddies stuck in the big flume to a slush-puppie nozzle with a mind of its own, from the hunt for a fabled elixir to the pesky windmill obstacle on hole 9 of the crazy golf course. Can our underdog stay afloat when thrown in at the deep end? Or will he lose his trunks, get chlorine in his eyes and swim into the ladder?
It’s sink or swim; dunk or be dunked; splish or splash.
Join these three Footlights, “master of comic timing” (The Tab) Alex Franklin, “abundantly talented writer” (Varsity) Noah Geelan and soon-to-be Cambridge alumnus Will Bicknell-Found for an hour of narrative sketch comedy that promises to be “light-hearted, gloriously silly and really very funny” (★★★★★ - Varsity).
