Julie Coulter is a runaway who is swept into the brutal reality of life on the streets. Taking refuge with a gang of displaced youths, Julie is immersed in a culture that challenges her very existence. Set under a bridge, we see the haunting symbolism that intertwines the lives and loves of each emerging character.
This is a moving story of a family that has fallen victim to our fast-paced modern society. In striving to succeed, much has been sacrificed, and a child has been lost to an underworld of hopelessness and despair.
‘The Bridge’ is a powerfully absorbing musical that will make you laugh and cry - a fusion of heartfelt drama, quirky comedy, impassioned music and song with energetic dance. The original musical score was created by Boyd Wilson and Louise Helfgott.
