‘Swimming with Men’ December 11th 7.30pm at the De Valence Pavilion, Tenby.

Rob Brydon plays Eric, a Reggie Perrin-like middle-aged accountant having an existential crisis about the metaphysical meaninglessness of existence. He’s sick of his job, sick of his commute, and convinced that his wife (Jane Horrocks), a budding local councillor, is having an affair with her very smarmy boss.

Eric moves out, drinks himself silly and, in somewhat random circumstances, is recruited by a synchronised swimming team he meets in his local pool. The other seven members are just as lost as he is – men of different ages and social backgrounds coping with bereavement, divorce or the unwelcome attentions of the police by escaping into the pool.

Joining them he starts to find a new lease of life, culminating in a trip to the World Championships in Italy. Will they take home the trophy?

There is a review and trailer here:  Guardian review
