ART & ABOUT

PASSENGER

Jessica Wilson and Ian Pidd, with writing by Nicola Gunn


"magnificently surreal and gloriously cinematic" (Total Theatre UK)

A conversation between two passengers on a bus is the starting point for this intimate yet epic story set against the background of a journey through Sydney.

Passenger is an immersive theatre work that takes place inside a moving suburban bus. Departing from an ordinary Pyrmont bus stop, you will gaze at the passing Sydney streets as you overhear a conversation between 2 fellow passengers.

Referencing Western films where cowboys respond to a lawless world, Passenger explores the ethics of our contemporary world and the impact of holding people accountable for their actions. A mysterious female character entices a male passenger to divulge the unethical actions of his corporate employer. What results is a dramatic departure from traditional theatre.

First seen in Melbourne then acclaimed in its 2019 London premiere, Passenger is “a brilliantly crafted story that thrusts you into a live-action cinematic experience” (Arts Hub).

Don't miss this unforgettable experience.

BE ON BOARD!
