Once Upon A Bridge


This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

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.

 Once Upon A Bridge Cast

Druid premiered Sonya Kelly’s ‘whip-smart’ (Irish Independent) comedy Furniture during the Galway International Arts Festival 2018, followed by a thirteen-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.

Once Upon a Bridge will be performed and broadcast live from The Mick Lally Theatre from the 11th to 13th February. The performances will not be pre-recorded.
