Claire Fuller: Swimming Lessons

Thursday, 5th October, 7:45PM

St Peter's Church, Oundle
Church Street, PE8 4AL

Ingrid Coleman writes letters to her husband, Gil, about the truth of their marriage, but instead of giving them to him, she hides them in the thousands of books he has collected over the years. When Ingrid has written her final letter she disappears from a Dorset beach, presumed drowned, leaving behind her husband, and her two daughters, Flora and Nan.
Twelve years later, Gil thinks he sees Ingrid from a bookshop window, Flora, who has existed in a limbo of hope and grief, imagination and fact, wants answers. She returns home to care for her father and to try to finally discover what happened to Ingrid, not realising that what she’s looking for is hidden in the books that surround her.

Scandalous and whip-smart, Swimming Lessons holds the Coleman family up to the light, exposing the mysterious truths of a passionate and troubled marriage.

Claire’s short stories have been published in many literary journals and shortlisted in prizes. Baker, Emily and Me, won the 2014 BBC Opening Lines competition and my story, A Quiet Tidy Man, won the Royal Academy and Pin Drop short story award 2016.

Claire is the author of Swimming Lessons (published 2017), and Our Endless Numbered Days (2015) which won the 2015 Desmond Elliott Prize for debut fiction and was a 2016 Richard and Judy Book Club Pick.

DENIAL (12A)

Sunday, 8th October, 7.45pm

STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall
Director: Mick Jackson
Release: 2016
Runtime: 1hr 49 min

Denial recounts the true story of Deborah Lipstadt's legal battle for historical truth against the notorious Holocaust denier David Irving, who accused her of libel when she denounced him in her acclaimed book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory. With the burden of proof in English defamation law falling upon the defendant, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. With a screenplay by David Hare this is gripping courtroom drama at its best.

‘One of the most spectacular aspects of the film are the court hearings as they are simultaneously almost unbelievable and yet lifted, verbatim, from the records.’ Lochley Shaddock, Filmlink
