Press Coverage

“Meaningful.” -The Georgia Straight

On June 17, 1958, Vancouver’s Second Narrows Bridge collapsed while under construction. Eighteen men plunged to their deaths, and many others were injured. Falsework provides an elegiac portrait of the many lives affected by the crumpling of that seemingly indomitable structure. Balancing documentary and fiction, this premiere workshop production follows compelling characters through intimate vignettes as families and workers struggle to come to terms with this terrible accident.

Content Advisory Strong language, grief, and loud noises.
