A co-production with Seattle Children’s Theatre
Written by Melissa James Gibson
Directed by Rita Giomi
This inventive and humorous drama celebrates the making of things—research papers, bridges, community. When fifth-grade latch-key child Sasha can’t find a pen to write the due-tomorrow report on the Brooklyn Bridge she is struggling to complete, she works up the courage to break her mother’s rules and venture out of their apartment for help. There, in view of the magnificent bridge, she discovers a diverse collection of neighbors, each special in their own way but alike in their deep good-heartedness. Sasha learns that there are facts and then there is what’s important—and what’s important is what matters.
The cast will feature School of Drama MFA candidates and MFA design students will design the lighting and costumes.
