“…entertaining and thoughtful …Everyone who sees White Guy on the Bus will probably recognize the hard truths about racism that drive this story — and, sadly, so much of American life today” ~ NY Times

“ ... a play with guts … this unusually frank drama has been gnawing away at me these last 24 hours … I see so many plays that want to blurt out some of the things that these characters say but don’t have the nerve. This one goes for the jugular” ~ Chicago Tribune

White Guy on the Bus obviously concerns race, but so much more … the play is not an issue-driven debate; instead, this is a powerful story about characters struggling with titanic decisions and negotiating desperately to save themselves. As in his other plays, Graham has a delicious way of penning realistic-sounding talk that seems to meander, but actually articulates important themes and ideas entertainingly and without preachiness” ~
