A demonic trip into a cultivated wilderness...

Erika claims to be on a pilgrimage when she is discovered on the wrong bus. Accused of lying by Herman the bus driver and her fellow travellers, suspicion and doubt leads to confrontation and a brutal attack. What is the truth, and what hope is there for tolerance in the world? Lukas Bärfuss’ metaphysical thriller has captivated and challenged audiences across Europe and has won both jury and audience awards in Germany.

This is the UK Premiere of The Bus.

The Crescent Theatre Company is presenting three plays for Spring 2009 that deal with one of the major issues confronting mankind: terrorism. These plays raise questions about conflict – both personal and ideological – and try to make sense of a world that often appears to make no sense at all.
