The Bridge was a beautifully crafted script. While it is initially humorously situated, the dark undertones gradually take hold of the plot until the reality of a post-apocalyptic future breaks through. The whimsical elements of the show engage and mislead the audience into thinking this may be a happy story.
I’ve never seen a dystopian setting like this on a stage before. This is a show that belongs on Netflix- one of those discoveries you binge watch, cry about when it’s over, and then inflict on your friends through constant reference until they watch it too. It is relevant and poignant (a word I enjoy writing, because it’s so hard to speak).
The Bridge by Green Eggs and Ham is playing at Studio 16 September 6 - 16 as part of the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
