In association with Obsidian Theatre
World Premiere co-produced by Neptune Theatre

Set in a rural Black community, The Bridge examines the relationship between two brothers,  strained over 20 years of secrecy, sin, and shame. Secrets abound and are revealed at every turn from the characters themselves, as well as from a trio of community gossips who provide the musical backdrop for this gospel-infused tale. Comedic and serious, light and introspective, The Bridge is an exploration of faith, family, and forgiveness.

Emotional, flawless performances and just an incredible story.
