Synopsis

An almost cheerful young man is about to be hanged for his attempt to blow up the Owl Creek Bridge during the Civil War. On this, Bierce creates the most surprising story of his career. With dramatic force, the situation is established. The man's nature and mission are quickly revealed in a moving encounter with his wife and two daughters. Then in one of the most exciting short scenes in literature, the audience is taken into the mind of the man at the moment of his execution. There are challenging roles for your cast and a challenge for your audience to understand the secret the man can't quite reveal.
