    Welcome aboard the 428

    Stories from the 428 is a theatre project which takes its inspiration from travelling on the 428 bus route from the tourist hub of Circular Quay to the urban heart of Canterbury. Written by award winning and emerging playwrights, this is a celebration of the communities that live and work along this bus line…

    Two groups of playwrights will travel on the 428 bus route from Circular Quay from the 1st February to the 14th February- experiencing the everchanging landscape of the City/Marrickville area and it’s community. From these trips the writers have a 24 hour period within to submit a scene or vignette inspired by the trip- which will be round tabled, developed and curated into a full length play.

    Frequently funny and sometimes sad, this two week season is a love letter to the local area - written about and for people who experience bus travel as a part of their everyday lives. Penned by some of Sydney’s most celebrated playwrights inconjunction with the best of the emerging underground- this is a unique and diverse theatre project highlighting the importance of community and finding inspiration in the everyday.
