Passenger


A conversation between 2 passengers on a bus is the starting point for this intimate yet epic story set against the background of a journey through Sydney.

Passenger is an immersive theatre work that takes place inside a moving suburban bus. Departing from an ordinary Pyrmont bus stop, you will gaze at the passing Sydney streets as you overhear a conversation between 2 fellow passengers.

Referencing Western films where cowboys respond to a lawless world, Passenger explores the ethics of our contemporary world and the impact of holding people accountable for their actions. A mysterious female character entices a male passenger to divulge the unethical actions of his corporate employer. What results is a dramatic departure from traditional theatre.

First seen in Melbourne then acclaimed in its 2019 London premiere, Passenger is “a brilliantly crafted story that thrusts you into a live-action cinematic experience” (Arts Hub).

Be on board!

Passenger is a production by Jessica Wilson and Ian Pidd, written by Nicola Gunn. The original composition is by Tom Fitzgerald.

Duration: 60 minutes Start and end point: Bus stop outside Marquee Sydney, (Pirrama Road after Jones Bay Road stop ID 200920), Pyrmont.
