August 4, 2012 The Bus was recently picked up by Cape Town, South Africa, theater director Wayne Hendricks where his production of the play just finished a successful two week run at Milnerton Playhouse. In a review in the Cape Times, Cape Town S.A., Sheila Chisholm headlined her review: “Dramatic Tale of Gay Love and Religious Conflict Well Worth Getting a Ticket for “The Bus.” You can check out an article in SevenDays here. Pictured above are actors Timothy Mayers and Darin Graham. Other cast members: Johann van der Merwe, Robyn Bensch, Coleen Tapson, Barry Altwig and director Wayne Hendricks.
We’re also proud to announce that New Conservatory Theater Center in San Francisco has picked up the play and added it to its 2012/2013 season where it will play for one month. When we performed the play at 59E59 Theaters New York City, NCTC Artistic Director Ed Decker traveled from San Francisco to see a performance; he then secured the West Coast premiere rights to perform THE BUS at NCTC. We’re doubly excited about our play being in San Francisco because Ed has also decided that following its run at NCTC, he’s going to tour the play to rural areas of Northern California.
