By James Lantz
Directed by John Simpkins

With Bryan Fitzgerald, Julia Lawler, Kerry McGann, Travis Mitchell, Robert Nuner, and Will Roland

The Bus is a touching and suspenseful tale of gay teens, a small town, and a big church. It is the story of Jordan and Ian, two boys who regularly rendezvous in a parked bus that belongs to the 'Golden Rule', the most powerful church in town. Late at night the boys meet to explore feelings that are at once awkward, humorous, and kept from the light of day. When their secret meeting place is in danger of being discovered, the boys find themselves caught in a conflict between 'Golden Rule' and a gas station owned by Ian's father - and the clash is explosive. Can Jordan and Ian move their fragile relationship into the light, or will the mounting pressures of church and family drive them apart?
