About

Take the time to stop.

Casual. Common. Everyday. Disability hate crime is on the rise. Jack, a young wheelchair user, experiences a disability hate crime as he tries to take a bus home from Edinburgh. Should he report it? It’s so casual. It’s so common. It happens every day.

Jack struggles with his anger at the situation and at the world which left him without a dad 6 months earlier. He keeps it all a secret from his mum Julia and she has a secret of her own….

Moving and funny, The Bus Stop asks us to take the time to stop and reflect. Why are we so scared to ask for help? Why are we scared to offer it?

Based on his personal experience, The Bus Stop is a writing debut from Gavin Yule as well as a directorial debut by Nicola Tuxworth, both members of Lung Ha Theatre Company.

Lung Ha Theatre Company is supported by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council.
