The Bridge to Utopia is closed during a global crisis; what do you do?
A universal story told by local storytellers, and proudly female-led, the play offers vignettes of humanity amidst apocalyptic chaos. Showcasing the power of kindness in a world starved of connection, it unravels through laughter, love, heartbreak and hope, to ask the question: 'What is community in the face of isolation?'
Georgie Oulton’s premiere production had its first draft shortlisted for Playmarket’s B4 25 playwright’s award in 2020, in collaboration with her fellow quarenteen-ager, Markella Kavenagh (together, they formed the allusive Georgina Marx). Following it’s development in a workshop led by Miriama McDowell with local actors and devisers, the play uses verbatim and lockdown accounts from all over the world to springboard a series of stories that lift the heart of 2021.
"...beautifully observed dialogue that efficiently reveals character and a plot with great punchlines and satisfying twists." Playmarket NZ for Flares & Pitchfork by Georgina Marx
Please note: The performance contains themes of trauma, grief and domestic abuse.
