The stage is set for Brink Productions’ world premiere adaptation of American Playwright and novelist Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Bridge of San Luis Rey.
Brink was granted permission from Thornton Wilder’s estate and it was a bit of a coup for Brink for the family to approve this radical adaptation with Paul Capsis performing the lead role of Camila Perichole and playing all parts, an incredible feat but no doubt Paul will rise to it being the incredible performer he is!
Adapted for the stage by Phillip Kavanagh and directed by Chris Drummond, The Bridge Of San Luis Rey is a work of contemporary performance with Brink Productions bringing their unique theatricality to a daisy chain of stories and coincidence that leads five strangers to meet their fate.
Guitarists Slava and Lenny Grigoryan are Music Directors and Slava Grigoryan and one of the UK’s leading guitarists Manus Noble will perform on stage alongside Paul.
