A Long Bridge Over Deep Waters (large-cast version)
A Long Bridge Over Deep Waters (large-cast version)
"A Long Bridge gently yet persuasively suggests we're all somehow connected…and by the end, the audience has been led to realize…'I'm made up of all that's come before me.'" —Los Angeles Times

"James Still's lovely collection of vignettes is a tone poem to…cultural and spiritual diversity." —LA Weekly

"Filled with compassion and respect for all viewpoints, A Long Bridge is a rare find—a play that can enlighten and entertain virtually everyone." —The Daily Breeze
By James Still.

Cast: 13 actors minimum. Can be cast with as many as 50+ actors. Large-Cast Version. A Long Bridge Over Deep Waters passionately and compassionately wrestles with the question: "How does faith both unite and divide us?" and explores the often invisibility of faith, how we make unconscious assumptions about one other based on religion, and how often those assumptions are wrong. Inspired by oral histories, community events, and the circular structure of Schnitzler's play La Ronde, the play's 10 scenes include a Native American woman who teaches ESL to a class of immigrant senior citizens; two astronauts in crisis far away from home and searching for common ground; a man who meets the woman who received his mother's transplanted heart; and a journalist who interviews a family whose son has been killed in Iraq. A Long Bridge Over Deep Waters traces a joyous, restless and surprising path through a wide-open spiritual and American landscape. It is both intimate and epic—an expansive panorama that stages an interlocking chain of unexpected encounters between contemporary communities of faith. This play was the final play in Los Angeles-based Cornerstone Theater Company's nationally acclaimed four-year Faith Based Theater Cycle. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
