OFF A BRIDGE, written by Jennifer Skura and directed by Greg Skura, is about William, a cross-dressing, queer man, who must travel through time to find his family, his friends, and even his younger self. As each day unfolds, William's Sisyphean journey becomes clear: Can he change his life’s moments before his fateful turn? The show starts at 7:30pm on October 5th, at the Dixon Place - 161A Christie St. (btwn. Rivington & Delancey) New York, NY 10002 - www.dixonplace.org- 212.219.0736. Tickets are $12 online, $15 at the door, and $10 for students/seniors.

OFF A BRIDGE, according to Jennifer Skura is, “A story inspired by my brother, the drag performer ONYA STEREO, LGBTQ teens in need, and my dear friend, activist Jim Swimm, who was present when Tyler Clementi's body was discovered in the Hudson River. A large part of society has neglected the tremendous bigotry and injustice gay adults have had to endure in their youth in order to stand proud today. There are many gay teens out there with nowhere to turn for compassionate and safe gay mentoring and guidance. This is a problem. I'd like my play to be a part of the conversation to finding solutions.”

OFF A BRIDGE is written by Jennifer Skura; performed by Sean Meehan, Jason Blaine, Annalisa Loeffler, Rob Sheridan, Eli Gelb, Evan Daves; direction & light/sound design by Greg Skura; assistant director/narrator Mia Anderson.
