The Bridge - A big adventure for a small city rat

Page One Theatre’s first ever play The Bridge is written by Miles Mitchell and Chloe Stephens. A poignant and poetic tale to inspire children and adults alike.

Combining puppetry and projection The Bridge tells the story of Lucien, a lonely city rat who watches the pigeons from under Waterloo Bridge and wishes he could join them in the sky. One day he spots the most beautiful pigeon and follows her into the lights of the big city.
