Routes follows fifteen-year-old Tom as he rides bus #65 in his home community of Millwoods in Edmonton. Struggling with problems at home and bullying at school, he has become an expert at being invisible. During this sixty-minute production, watch Tom draw connections between the neighbourhood, his family, his school and the recent tragedy of murder on his bus route. This play highlights the normalcy of violence in some communities, and how sometimes, it only takes one person standing up for change to make a difference.
WARNING: Recommended for ages 13 and up.
