Celebrated author Bruce Graham’s latest play, “White Guy on the Bus” will be the third and latest production of the 2019-2020 season at Stagecrafters Theatre in Chestnut Hill, opening Friday, Feb. 7.
The play is set in contemporary Philadelphia and involves two strangers who regularly ride a bus together and strike up an unlikely friendship. As their story progresses, an electrifying disclosure foreshadows dire consequences, and horrific, life-changing decisions are made. The play weaves a twisted web of moral ambiguity and is a perceptive commentary on racial and class inequality in America.
Production performance dates are Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays, Feb. 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. There are two Sunday matinees scheduled for Feb. 16 and Feb. 23 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $21 online (no service charge) and $25 at the door. Thursday evening performances are two for $32 online and two for $35 at the door. Discounts are available for students with valid ID, seniors, members of the performing arts industry and groups of 15 or more.
The theater is located in the heart of Chestnut Hill at 8130 Germantown Ave. For more information, visit www.thestagecrafters.org.
