PassengersBy Sam Bobrick

Directed by Steve Cooper
Performed by The Woodinville Repertory Theatre June 7-29th, 2013 at Denali Slab & Tile Studio.


Here’s the story:

Woodinville Repertory Theatre is proud to present Passengers by Sam Bobrick.  It is directed by Steve Cooper.
Four actors, a man and woman in their mid to late twenties and a man and woman in their mid to late forties, play seventeen characters in eight short scenes that take place in a small mid-western bus station. The scenes, which segue fluidly from one to another without stopping, vary from comedic to poignant and are tied together in the last scene.
“For a real adventure in theatre, hop on board Passengers…[It] is a fresh, idiosyncratic, irreverent comedy set in, of all places, a bus station. In eight sketches, a series of characters meet in the bus station. The encounters weave together a subtle but profound theme…Passengers is a great script. The characters are good and the dialog witty and sharp…Everything about this show is unexpected and unconventional.” – Niles Daily Times
“Sam Bobrick, the talented playwright, once again shows his innate ability with this play’s sharp wit, dry humor and impeccable comedic timing.” Bonnie Priver – The Tolucan Times
