I CAN BREATHE UNDERWATER
The Cutting Room Floor’s gripping work, I Can Breathe Underwater, explores the question: how do we grieve when we've never been taught?
You step outside for some air. It's the middle of summer. The sun hasn’t been down for long and you’ve been drinking since 3pm. You head towards the water to try and wake yourself up but 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 water. Face down.
What do you do?
I Can Breathe Underwater is a provocative story of four friends who go on an unforgettable journey. Grief has existed for all time, yet still we don’t know how to deal with it. Do we just wade through grief, looking for a way to break through to the surface?
Returning with a splash from the 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 and join the most unforgettable party of the year.

This isn’t a slippery slope; it’s just what you do.
It’s what you’ve always done.
