Waiting for the Bus

by Benjamin Connor

About the Play

Tragicomedy. 30-40 minutes. 2 females, 2 males. Suitable for high school and older performers, and middle school and older audiences.

Runner-up in the New Voices One-Act Competition for Young Playwrights.


Leo can't stop talking about dead philosophers. Ryan can't stop thinking about April. And Casey...is a quiet mystery. The lives of four teens intersect every morning at the neighborhood bus stop, where their tranquil camaraderie gives way to a deeper dissatisfaction with the way things are. When relationships begin to fray and secrets are pushed into the open, the only constant is the clockwork arrival of the bus.
