Taking Part

@ Criterion Theatre, London

Sorry - no tickets available

Taking Part

Lucky Henry, a Congolese security guard, has set his sights set on representing his country at the 2012 Olympics. Only one problem; he's a terrible swimmer and his Russian coach wants to fly home on the first day of training.

Everyone loves an underdog – think Eddie the Eagle or Eric the Eel. Follow Henry's journey from deep end straggler to Olympic hopeful as the two men try to fulfill their dreams at the London games.

Taking part is a funny, timely tale of true grit, self belief and canny opportunism.
