"The Ladys Swims Today is a fun ride, slowly unfolding, unveiling complication after complication as it builds towards its conclusion."    Stage Buzz Review, Byrn Harrison, NYC   

On the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, four men plan to steal a couple million dollars off a boat heading for Florida.  The boat anchors for the night, just across the Bay, but three women stand in their way: the wife of the motel owner where the men are staying, her girlfriend from Washington, DC, and the stripper who shows up on the scene, looking for her boyfriend who is in on the plan.   The men go out on the Bay, and return not so much changed as revealed  -- to each other, to the women and themselves.
