The Bridge premieres at Neptune Theatre, Jan 22-Feb 10

The Bridge
By Shauntay Grant
Directed by Anthony Black

An exploration of faith, family and forgiveness co-produced by 2b theatre company and Neptune Theatre in association with Obsidian Theatre Company

Set in a rural Black Nova Scotian community, The Bridge explores the complexities of a relationship between two brothers strained over 20 years of secrecy, sin and shame. Secrets are revealed one by one from the brothers themselves, as well as a trio of community gossips who provide the musical backdrop for this gospel-infused tale.
