The Bridge Builders @ Short+Sweet Festival Sydney


  • The Depot Theatre 12 Addison Road Marrickville NSW 2204 Australia (map)

Coming to the world's biggest short play festival...

The winners of Short+Sweet Best Script, Best Director & Best Actor 2013 return with a comedy about a time when megastructures were built by mavericks with a dream.

Behind every great marvel of engineering lies a person of vision. Howard Lewarde was once such an individual. Haunted by his past, beholden to investors and tormented by his pet iguana, Howard’s latest project to build a bridge from Colorado to Zurich is under threat. Howard has made cost cutting shortcuts and his chief engineer Donovan refuses to continue work. At stake are reputations, dreams, the respect of a lizard and the greatest bridge ever conceived.
