“ … an ideal piece of theater for adults and older kids to enjoy together … Gibson’s affirmation of the importance of building communal bonds is lovely ….” – Seattle Times
BROOKLYN BRIDGE, Melissa James Gibson’s charming, witty and thoughtful story, centers on 10-year-old Sasha, a latchkey kid with a big homework assignment, a report on the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s due tomorrow, and the problem is... she can’t find a pen! One little girl’s procrastination helps her meet her extraordinary brownstone neighbors, and connect with quirky and caring community all around her. BROOKLYN BRIDGE is a play that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
“Bridges are like handshakes connecting land and people,” says Artistic Director Susan E. Evans, “In BROOKLYN BRIDGE, as Sasha meets the people in her own apartment building, she builds her own bridges of community. Melissa James Gibson has an uncanny ear for dialogue, and a generous, gentle and uncondescending way of talking about the importance of reaching across the corridors.”
