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, this brand new 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?
Following it’s development in a workshop led by Miriama McDowell with local actors and devisers, Georgie Oulton's premiere production uses verbatim and lockdown accounts from all over the world to springboard a story that warms your heart.
“To read this play is like holding a diamond up to the light and catching a multitude of different colours. It effortlessly weaves together the epic and the intimate in consistently surprising ways. It manages to be both funny and touching, and most importantly, relatable.” - says director Anna Ledwich, on Godzonia.
Please note: The performance contains themes of trauma, grief and domestic abuse.
