Breathe in deep, can ya smell it? Smell of bus seats. Vinyl and sweat. Nothing nowhere beats that. Bustown. A junked paradise of worn tires and scrap metal, far away from the land of Otherness.
Set in a post-apocalyptic junkyard town called Bustown, the play focuses on young residents who dream of escaping their tiny town in the middle of nowhere and how their decisions affect the whole town in a way that relates to how the world truly runs.
Enjoying the safety of their junkyard town, the people of Bustown happily wait for The Driver to return. But Axel and Cressida canât stop thinking about Otherness. With a chain of keys in close reach, how long will they continue to wait?
A vibrant exploration of small town life, Bustown questions the desperate move young people make to the city and the impact it has on the people and places they leave behind.
