Strangers, a woman and a boy, on a cold, road at night, next to a cemetery, waiting for a bus.
Strangers, a woman and a boy, on a cold, road at night, next to a cemetery, waiting for a bus. The bus is late. The woman sinks into herself, her coat hanging crooked, too thin for this cold night. Things couldn’t be worse. She has some ominous connection with the nearby hospital. She’s unresponsive to the fast-talking teenager who works to engage her with everything from philosophical riffs to brash seduction. Neither knows what this night holds in store. Hamish Linklater’s funny and ultimately spooky debut play explores life, death, and Doritos as these two characters cling to a temporary escape from loneliness.
“tart, often friskily funny dialogue”
New York Times
“Wistful…Linklater could take the narrative anywhere. He leads it to the Twilight Zone.”
NY Daily News
“Intimate… dryly funny… [with] a final twist that lands halfway between O. Henry and M. Night Shyamalan.”
New York Post
