You’ll never know who you’ll meet on the bus.
Audience members are invited for a ride like and unlike any experience on The Bus. Traveling between the zones of too absurd to be real and absurd enough to be nothing but real, The Bus is an interactive play that highlights both anxieties of solitude and intimacy that can only arise from taking public transit.
Playwright: Ashley Park
Ashley is a third-year student at UBC majoring in BFA Creative Writing and BA Theatre. A lover of the spoken word, Ashley’s interests lie in the power of dialogue and what it feels to have voice or be denied it. Thanks to the faculty’s support, Ashley is able to bring The Bus for the 2016 Brave New Play Rites stage. The Bus was inspired by those who commutes on the daily, and are dedicated to those going somewhere.
