An epic play about love during the wars in former Yugoslavia comes to Amsterdam directly after its world premiere in London! In English with the Original Cast.
In Mostar, Yugoslavia, in 1988, a young boy from out of town named Mili dives from the famous Old Bridge. Mina watches and as Mili falls, she begins falling for him. Four years later Mina and Mili know that their future lies together, but in the now Bosnian town of Mostar divisions seem to keep on growing.
Old Bridge is a bold, fresh and contemporary take on real events, about the impact of a war that Europe mostly forgot and the love and loss of those who lived through it.
