Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, New York

The seventh season at the Bridge will present new plays from across Canada by three of the country’s brightest young playwrights – Edmonton’s Matt MacKenzie, Toronto’s Daniel Karasik and Montreal’s Nicolas Billon. Workshops of MacKenzie’s SIA and Karasik’s The Innocents will be presented in April and May, respectively, at our resident New York City space, Shetler Studios, followed by a summer production in downtown Manhattan of Nicolas Billon’s award-winning Greenland, directed by Ravi Jain.

The season will open April 1st with SIA, MacKenzie’s powerfully engaging hostage drama set in the Liberian refugee camp of Buduburam. Directed by Jenn Thompson, the cast will feature New York actors Peterson Townsend, Susan Heyward, and Hunter Canning.

In May, the company will present Karasik’s sharply written dark comedy The Innocents. The workshop marks the 24 year old playwright’s return to New York, following a 2009 hotINK Festival run of his award-winning play In Full Light.

August will bring the highly anticipated return of Nicolas Billon’s Greenland, following its February 2010 workshop with the Bridge. The gripping story of a family’s alienation won the Outstanding Production and Audience Choice Awards at the 2009 SummerWorks festival. The US premiere will reunite Billon and Jain with Claire Calnan and Andrew Musselman from the Toronto production, and Eryn Murman (Broadway’s Spring Awakening) from the NY workshop.
