Beverley Elliott

Sink or Swim

With over 100 films and TV credits to her name, writer and performer Beverley Elliott captures her own childhood in her latest gem, Sink or Swim. We follow along as our heroine trades the safety of the family farm for the thugs of a one-room schoolhouse. With comedic grace and cinematic clarity, Elliott brings to life the big adventures, betrayals and epiphanies of childhood, answering life’s big questions, like “Why did I eat the fish food?” Elliott’s compelling stage presence is backed by evocative video images and Bill Costin’s impeccable piano accompaniment.
