Ten years after their commencement into the real world, 6 former friends are brought back together to reflect on their last year at Sycamore University.  When they all learn the truth about a single night, they realize how one night, one choice, affected them all. 

A Hand Across the Bridge is part of Jonathan G Galvez’s 16-part Bridge series, a cycle of plays with interconnected characters, stories, and themes. Other chapters of the award-winning series have appeared in the New York International Fringe Festival, the Manhattan Repertory Theater, and William Paterson University.
