Excerpts from Late Bus performances at UEA Studio, Norwich and
Camden Peoples Theatre, London
An odd collection of characters, who have ended their lives for very different reasons, find themselves in limbo circling London aboard The Late Bus. The play explores the nature of suicide and society’s reaction to it. The company worked in partnership with the mental health charity Mind to highlight the scale of suicide in the UK and the frightening fact that 24,000 10-19 year olds attempt suicide every year.
