Saturday morning. 1am. Trafalgar Square. Kim stumbles onto the N89 and falls asleep on a stranger’s shoulder. That shoulder belongs to Daniel. This chance meeting is the start of something special.
As the bus hurtles through Southwark, Elephant, Deptford and Lewisham, a series of interactions with other passengers help Kim and Daniel learn a lot about each other, and, as they both come out of their shells way more than they usually would with a stranger, they even learn some new things about themselves. Expect all the fun of a London night bus with fried chicken, drunken club-goers and that guy yelling loudly into his phone – it’s laughs, gasps and tears galore in this semi-immersive comedy set on the N89. Come along for the ride!
N89 is written by Mark Daniels.
