    Members of the cast and other artists from Northlight Theatre will share scenes as well as experiences working on their current show. A wealthy white businessman and a struggling black single mom ride the same bus week after week. As they get to know each other, their conversation reveals a complex web of moral ambiguity, revenge, and racial biases. This world premiere play provides a candid and surprising perspective on the racial and socioeconomic divide in the education and criminal justice systems, and the pervasiveness of stereotyping across race, class and gender lines.
