The No. 11 Bus is a music-theatre work in which musicians, dancers and mime all play an equal part. It has been described as an apocalyptic comedy, and both comic and terrifying elements should be exploited as far aspossible. The setting is a mythical journey of the No. 11 bus in London, which runs between Liverpool Street and Hammersmith. This can be adapted to suit the needs of the particular group that is performing it.
