One Lane Bridge By Stephen Gregg.

A snowy night. A drive through a mountain canyon. Sixteen-year-old Eli agrees to drive a friend of a friend to Home Depot. But Eli's terrible driving sparks an argument, and the conversation takes an odd, dark turn. Eli finds himself driving too fast, not because he's going to be late, but because he wants out of that car. One Lane Bridge is relentlessly compelling, genuinely scary and contains one moment so startling that your audience is guaranteed to talk about it afterward.

Customer Reviews

"This is a very interesting show. Audiences enjoy it because they are left wondering what happened."
Review by Caitlyn Bryant, Liberty HS, Liberty, S.D.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"It is a little tricky for the students to understand at first so come to the first rehearsal prepared to answer all sort of questions. The script doesn’t give answers so make sure you have your own idea but also be flexible because the students may have better ideas. I found reading the poem he talks about as his inspiration to be very helpful in directing this play."
