"WHITE GUY ON THE BUS" by Bruce Graham
Ray, a wealthy white business executive, rides the bus through a struggling black neighborhood and past the state penitentiary every Saturday. For many on the bus it doesnt make sense. Why would a rich, white, businessman give up his life of luxury to ride a bus? On his weekly ride, Ray befriends Shatique, a young African-American woman putting herself through school and battling to raise a son on her own. As they get to know each other the threads that tie them together gradually unravel in a complex web of moral ambiguity, race, privilege, and revenge.

There isn't a play in America today that more perfectly reflects the times in which we live. Brilliant, bold, and compelling the west coast premier of "WHITE GUY ON THE BUS" is everything theatre should be!! BE THERE!

Chicago Sun Times -- Recommended
"Graham says things that many of other playwrights would quickly self-censor"

Chicago Stage Standard - Highly Recommended
"While this is not a play full of grandeur technical elements, it is all about the story which also leaves you in deep thought and reflection. It also delivers a powerful message which is raw, edgy, and challenges the mind".
