by Gao Xingjian

Written in 1981 ‘Bus Stop’ was the first play by the Chinese writer and Nobel laureate Gao Xingjian. This contentious and rarely performed play tells the story of eight characters, each an archetype representing a different element of Chinese society. Each character has hopes for the future, which can only be realized by moving forward into the city. However, their only means of transport, a public bus, repeatedly passes by without stopping.
