Melissa James Gibson’s charming, witty and thoughtful story centers on 10-year-old Sasha, a latchkey kid with a big homework assignment, a report on the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s due tomorrow, and the problem is... she can’t find a pen! One little girl’s procrastination helps her meet her extraordinary brownstone neighbors, and connect with quirky and caring community all around her. Brooklyn Bridge is a play that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
