There is a land of the living and a land of the dead, and the bridge is love...

The Bridge of San Luis Rey

Presented by Brink Productions in Association with Adelaide Festival Centre’s Adelaide Guitar Festival

It’s 18th century Peru. An ancient Incan rope bridge collapses sending five strangers plummeting to their deaths. In this thrilling reimagining of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-winning novel, as adapted by Phillip Kavanagh, Adelaide’s celebrated Brink Productions brings their unique theatricality to a daisy chain of stories and coincidence that leads five strangers to meet their fate. The incomparable Paul Capsis joins acclaimed guitarists Slava Grigoryan and Manus Noble on stage to infuse the world with the heat and sweat of Latin American music, transporting us across oceans and time and into a communion with the Fates.
