White Guy on the Bus

White Guy on the Bus takes the audience for a ride that starts easily but then makes an unexpected turn into some bumpy territory. You will recognize the hard truths about racism that drive this story — and, sadly, so much of American life.

Week after week, a wealthy businessman rides the same bus, befriending Shatique, a young single mother putting herself through school and struggling to raise a son on her own. As they get to know one another, their pasts unfold and tensions rise, unraveling a complex web of revenge, social mores and racial biases from a candid and unexpected perspective. “White Guy on the Bus is a social commentary and morality tale, but it’s also a well-crafted straight-out mystery” (NY Times).
