    The Bard’s Town Presents: The Bus Stop at Sycamore and Vine

    As part of their 1st Annual Derby City Playwrights New Play Festival, The Bard’s Town presents The Bus Stop at Sycamore and Vine.

    Everyone goes to the bus stop at Sycamore and Vine. They go to hang out, but most kids would never dream of actually catching that bus downtown. But Taylor is different. He’s a dreamer, uninterested in sports, or girls; a fact that his older brother Trent has tried to change for years, defending Taylor from rumors and bullies. When Taylor can no longer ignore his own feelings, he has to decide if he can pretend to be the brother that Trent wants, and Trent has to decide if he can love the brother he has, or become one of the bullies.

    Written by Eli Keel and Tyler Curth, and directed by Joe Hatfield.

    Where: The Bard's Town, 1801 Bardstown Road
