Kevin Kling is the 1993 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama
This one man tour-de-force originally starred the author playing all eight of the people on a Minneapolis bus. Structured as a series of monologues in which events occur simultaneously, this hilarious and decidedly different work had them rolling in the isles at Actors Theatre of Louisville's famed Humana Festival, where it won the Heidemann Award. Characters include the drool driver, an odd lady, a religious proselytizer, a drunk with a 12 pack over his head, a business man who is not Dave no matter how fervently the drunk insists he is and a mysterious intruder.
