A new play by James Lantz.

Directed by Sara Staley.

_ The Bus_ is the story of Jordan and Ian, two boys who regularly rendezvous in a parked bus that belongs to the most powerful church in town, Golden Rule. Late at night, they meet to explore sexual feelings that are at once awkward, humorous, and must remain a secret. When their meeting place is in danger of being discovered, the boys find themselves caught in a conflict between Golden Rule and a gas station owned by Ian’s father — and the clash proves explosive. Can Jordan and Ian move their fragile relationship into the light, or will church and family drive them back?**
