Read the review for White Guy on the Bus
This just in: Chestnut Hill Local review
White Guy on the Bus ,renowned author Bruce Graham’s play set in contemporary Philadelphia, unfolds as we see two strangers, Shatique and Ray … she an African-American single mother, he a white, middle-aged, wealthy financier who regularly ride a bus together, strike up a friendship. The play, as it weaves a twisted web of moral ambiguity, is an out-and-out thriller, as well as a deeply perceptive commentary on racial and class inequality in America.
” A scathing take on race.” The New York Times

This is the story of four people who work in a Detroit automobile stamping factory. Their intersecting life stories are all beautifully rendered,full of nuances, complexities, tenderness, and heartbreak.

In the 1880s, the epoch that launched the miracle of electricity, Dr. Givings, a gentleman and a scientist, invents a device for treating female”hysteria”: the vibrator. Provocative and funny, this play provides excellent insight into the morals of the time.
