B.U.S. 8: Six local playwrights embarked on a 90-minute bus ride, then had 12 hours in which to write a 10-minute play inspired by the journey. The experience was the subject of celebration during Bricolage Urban Scrawl (B.U.S.) 8. Hosted by the Bricolage Production Company, a VIP reception on April 5 served as pre-game for the curtain rising on the following day.
