There are a lot of people in the world. There are all similar, in the sense that they came to this world the same way, and leaving it. Also many use the public transport. This fact would not make any strong point, so to say comparing to eternity, if not for the mind of the playwright Helmut Krausser. Rethinkingthefamousmetaphor lifeasapath, author thought of a bus stop. Whatisit? Aplace, where everything could be resolved.Who needs to go will take a different route, beyond live, to the great beyond. Who has some time left probably, would continue with their road. Well, there is a lot of unknown around us. It only looks that way, that all mysteries cant be solved and all strange things be unnoticed. You just have to look closer and well known things would light up with deeper colors. And then, like with this production, sad things would mix with gay, tragic and comic would become inseparable, and the bus stop would become the battlefield for the immortal HUMAN SOUL.
