Five time Obie Award-winning actor and playwright David Greenspan adapts Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, turning this richly multi-faceted tale, of five travelers in colonial Peru hurled to their deaths by a collapsing bridge, into a wryly lyrical fable of fate, love, and the transformative magic of theater. “There is a land of the living and a land of the dead,” Wilder wrote, “and the bridge is love.” The Bridge of San Luis Rey deepens Miami New Drama’s relationship with the Wilder Estate that began with our acclaimed production of Our Town, with Greenspan heading a multicultural cast led by award-winning director Ken Rus Schmoll.
