Four friends. One party. One unforgettable night.

You step outside for some air. It’s the middle of summer, and the sun hasn’t been down for long. You’ve been drinking since 3pm and you’ve lost your friend to some jerk’s bedroom. You head towards the water to try and wake yourself up. There are two people going at it on the steps of the pool. You’re about to throw in the towel and head home, when you notice a third person in the pool. Face down.

What do you do?

You’ll sink another beer and have another shot. This isn’t a slippery slope, it’s just what you do. Because it’s what you’ve always known.

From the team that brought you theatre in a home and a cafe, brings you theatre in a pool. The Cutting Room Floor’s latest devised production, I Can Breathe Underwater, explores the question: How do we grieve when we’ve never been taught?

Returning from a national tour of their 2014 sell out Fringe show ‘All The Single Lad(ie)s’, The Cutting Room Floor invites you to head down to the poolside for a new and exciting theatrical experience in Perth.
