What do Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, a drunk person, football supporters and noisy schoolchildren have in common? They are all people you might spot on the bus!

Drama on the Bus will introduce you to a group of characters – how do they navigate tricky situations on the bus? How do they make themselves heard if they need someone to give up their seat? Where is their favourite place to visit on the bus? Find out the answers to these questions and more at our show.
