Druid presents a live stream of a new play
Once Upon A Bridge
A New Play by Sonya Kelly
Directed by Sara Joyce
‘A fairytale for a modern age.’
Early one morning on Putney Bridge, three strangers’ lives collided for one fleeting second.
Inspired by real events, Once Upon a Bridge weaves a tale about human triumph and frailty, about the power of destiny and chance, and why sometimes we choose to hate, and other times we choose to dance.
Druid premiered Sonya Kelly’s ‘whip-smart’ (Irish Independent) comedy Furniture during the Galway International Arts Festival 2018, followed by a 13-venue national tour last year. In a world premiere production, Once Upon a Bridge will be performed and live streamed from The Mick Lally Theatre, Galway, for four performances only. The cast includes Druid Ensemble member Aaron Monaghan with Siobhán Cullen and Adetomiwa Edun.
