An unexpected bridge between sorrow and hope

In the whimsically theatrical world of Jump, lights flicker, hearts heal, and you never know what surprises might literally fall from the sky. Discover the magic of hope in the midst of grief and the promise of human connection as two strangers find solace on a bridge.


This play contains some coarse language and deals with themes grief, depression, and suicidal ideation. We encourage all patrons to use their own discretion in determining the appropriateness of the material. This production contains the smoking of herbal cigarettes and water-based vapes, plus the use of water-based haze.
