Inventive props help tell the story in "The Art of Swimming."

Tiny Dynamite will present the one-woman show, "The Art of Swimming," as part of the company's seventh A Play, A Pie and A Pint Series this December.

For $20, theatergoers can watch Lee Minora command the stage while enjoying a slice of pizza and a beer.

The actress tells an imaginative story of celebrity-athlete Mercedes Gleitze in "The Art of Swimming," which begins in 1927, after 26-year old Gleitze successfully swims the 20-mile crossing of the English Channel.
