Druid's critically acclaimed production of Sonya Kelly's “fascinating new drama”. (The Irish Times)

A tale for a modern age.

Early one morning on Putney Bridge, London, three strangers’ lives collided for one fleeting second.

Inspired by real events, Once Upon a Bridge weaves a tale of human triumph and frailty, the power of destiny and chance, and why sometimes we choose to hate, and other times we choose to dance.

Performed live to camera at The Mick Lally Theatre, Druid's home in Galway, in February 2021.
