This is not a normal person. This is not a normal bus ride. Be careful where you get off.
Written by Ross Hammond, this was a monodrama written while fatigued, almost entirely on busses taken around midnight. The stimuli produced an interesting perception of fellow commuters. It was around the idea for this piece that the prompt for Mysteries in Transit as a project was born.
