"The Dixie Swim Club" will run Friday, Oct. 17 through Saturday, Nov. 1 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette – the corner of 5th Street and North Street.

Question: How would you describe Dinah?
Stephanie Bosma: She's aggressive, high-powered and driven. She has come to the top of the law field, as a woman, in the late 1970s and she did it on her own.

Question: What does Dinah want?
S.B.: She is looking to put her work behind her while on vacation with some of her old pals from college. When she gets back to her regular life, she will go non-stop and probably not think much about herself, but about her career. She lets go a little bit on vacation, but she's still aggressive and driven among her friends, but that's what they're used to. She can leave most of her work behind and drink martinis all day.

Question: What is nice about being in an all-woman group?
S.B.: The cast is extremely talented and fun. They're very diverse in age and experience, and in the characters they play. I really enjoy having a cast of women because we can be who we are with each other as we may not be otherwise.

Question: Imagine you and your real-life female friends got together for a weekend. Where would you go and what would you do?
S.B.: We go to the beach, we sit in the sun and drink tasty cold beverages and talk about whatever we want, letting it all hang out, with no cares to the rest of the world.
