BROKEN BRIDGES, Laura Emack's history play, is set in Prospect, Maine, in 1958. Veteran Midcoast actors Beth and Mike Rowe portray Marion and Elwood Laforge as Marion becomes the town's first female selectman over Elwood's strenuous objections. Evelyn Lacroix of Skowhegan plays fictional neighbor Hazel, newly divorced with a baby at age nineteen, who wonders what just happened to her perfect life.
BROKEN BRIDGES debuted at Prospect History Day in 2015 with an on-book performance directed by the playwright. Sandi Blanchette of Orland, best known for stage roles with the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Maine at The Grand, directs the current full production by the "Stage Fright at the Fort Ensemble." The troupe also includes André Blanchard, child actor Bixby Hawkins, Deborah Chretien, David Blanchette, Eric Woodbury and Bronson Stephens.
