When the Thames burst its banks, the North and the South became separated. Myths abound about‘the other side’ - is it really better? Four sets of teenagers ignore the risks of the treacherous crossing to find out whether the other side is all it’s cracked up to be. The drowned commuters of the Circle Line conjure memories of the past.
These Bridges looks at a fearful future and seeks to show that if we stick together, we may just survive it all.

In addition to the group of teenagers named in the script, we are  looking for a group of actors who can work as an ensemble for the chorus who portray the ghosts of drowned commuters and the waters/current of the Thames. The production will include a lot of physical theatre.

PLEASE NOTE there is some explicit language in the first few pages of the script. These are character based and fade out as the situation they are in changes.

 Auditions - 5.30pm-7.30pm, Sunday 18th November, 2018
