    Danny and the Deep Blue Sea – by John Patrick Shanley
    Directed by Justin Treasure
    Set in the Bronx NY, this iconic play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Shanley collides us with two of society’s beautiful, yet dysfunctional city misfits. After a chance encounter in a forgotten bar, their defenses dissolve and a spontaneous night of heart thumping confession, love and chaos unfolds. With no easy way out, both are forced to dive deep in order to find a forgiveness that offers the rare chance of a more hopeful future. This is an explosive, deeply affecting play exploring the issues of personal alienation and the redemptive power of love.

    4th St Theatre, Chesterton, IN 46304, USA

    Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five YearsParadeSongs for a New World) and Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County captures the lyrical expanse of America’s heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question” “What if…?” Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Score and Orchestrations, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless.

    Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-ravaged Italy, looks forward to a rare four days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 State Fair. When ruggedly handsome, National Geographic photographer, Robert Kincaid, pulls into her driveway seeking directions, though, what happens in those four days may very well alter the course of Francesca’s life.
