The Dixie Swim Club
Five Southern women, whose friendships began on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge their relationships. It focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, is the spunky team captain. Dinah, is the wisecracking overachiever. Lexie, is pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. Vernadette, is acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, and has decided to give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…
Sheree – The spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and “perfect” life, and continues to be the groups’ leader.
Dinah – The wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.
Lexie – Pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married – over and over and over again.
Vernadette – Self-deprecating and acerbic, she’s acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, and has decided to give in and embrace the chaos.
Jeri Neal – Sweet, eager-to-please, experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.
