The Bus

The Bus

By Stanislav Stratiev
Translated from Bulgarian by Thomas Crowe

“Citizens! I ask you... Where are we going?”

When the timetable of our lives falls to pieces, how will we choose to conduct ourselves? On a frosty evening in late autumn, nine characters unsuspectingly board an ordinary bus that ought to take them to the city centre, as it always has. Their beloved Driver has something else in mind.

KDC Theatre presents The Bus, an absurdist comedy about resigning oneself to a higher power, from the mind of one of Bulgaria’s most celebrated playwrights: Stanislav Stratiev.


Made possible with the generous support of Anna Ganev

Trigger warnings: Physical violence


There will be a post-show "Talk Back" hosted by the Bulgarian Cultural Institute following Friday's performance.
