Nine passengers are travelling in a city bus heading downtown when suddenly it deviates from its route. They begin to realize they will never get where they were going. In their fear, panic and terror they turn into an aggressive, faceless mass.


Bus by Stanislav Stratiev, one of the greatest satirists of Bulgarian drama and literature, was written in 1980, in the then only possible manner to criticize the realities of a totalitarian society: the Aesopian language. Mladen Kiselov immediately staged it at the Theatre of Satire. Director Zdravko Mitkov revisits it to rediscover its powerful topicality. He reads Bus as a fatally contemporary farce and thriller twisted in the dark paradoxes of a deformed society. Some of the most popular theatre and TV comedians follow him in his steps.
