GUARDING THE BRIDGE tells the story of a bigoted father and his well-educated son who occupy a broken-down bridge in a remote wooded area. The father is a manifestation of the son's memory as he recalls events that occurred on the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. It becomes increasingly obvious that, despite the younger man's protests to the contrary, his father's prejudices are grounded in his subconscious. A co-winner of the 1998 Michael Kanin Award for Best Short Play.

Ripple Effect Artists, Inc. is an actor's equity 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that addresses injustice and causes social impact through art - primarily by producing masterful plays - presenting them along with talkback discussions in partnership with educators and advocacy groups.
