Synopsis

Three trolls stand guard at a bridge. Three goats beg them to let the starving herd cross the bridge to graze in lush pastures. The trolls agree on the condition that the goats sacrifice one of their members. Each goat is brave and eager to cooperate—until he is asked to be the sacrifice. The play points an accusing finger at people whose beliefs, morals and religious practices are contingent upon their own comfort and well-being. It is an important, timely, intelligent look at the weaknesses of modern society. The Bridge is a dynamic contest play.

Customer Reviews

"It’s a good piece with a message but also gives acting students some good roles to create unique characters with. "
Review by Jason Lehman, Jackson High School, Jackson, Ga.
"The Bridge is a splendid philosophical treatment of the treasured Billy Goats Gruff fairytale. It is well written and examines the true nature of mankind."
