The Bridges of Madison County

Date: 27 Jan 2020

Francesca Johnson is an Italian immigrant housewife living a happy existence on a farm in the American Midwest.

However, while her family are away for a few days at the 1965 State Fair, she meets Robert Kincaid, a National Geographic photographer on assignment filming historic bridges in the area. Their initial friendship develops into a brief but passionate affair which has devastating consequences on both their lives.

The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question of, ‘What if …?’

Based on the best-selling novel and developed by the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World) and Marsha Norman (The Secret Garden, The Colour Purple), this production features Kate Maree Hoolihan, Ian Stenlake, Martin Crewes, Anton Berezin, Beth Daly, Barry Mitchell, Grady Swithenbank and Zoe Ioannou. Neil Gooding (Dogfight, High Fidelity) directs.

The winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Score and Orchestrations, The Bridges of Madison County is about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross.
