Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre is happy to Welcome

Ladies That Bus

by Joyce Branagh & The Ladies That Bus Tour

Ladies That Bus is a heart-warming and hilarious tale of journeys taken and not taken, of regrets and celebrations, of isolation and what it means to be free… Based on real-life interviews with bus travellers in the North, and peppered with humour, songs and original music, it shows a day-in-the life of the Route 555 bus travelling from Lancaster to Keswick, and the kaleidoscope of different characters that travel on it – each with their very own tales to tell…

With 3 Todmorden residents as part of the creative team behind this production, (Writers and performers), Ladies That Bus are bringing their bus route to freedom back to their hometown!

What audiences have said:

“An episodic-like play that introduces you to an array of quirky everyday characters that each have a unique, hilarious perspective on one bus”

“A totally captivating kaleidoscopic glimpse into a series of women’s lives whose only common elements are their use of the bus- and their humanity….”

“A real insight into the rural world of the 555. Not what you expect- in the best possible way!”

"A hilarious, heart-warming, emotional journey!"

What the critics have said:

"Hold very tight please, and strap yourselves in for a riveting ride on the 555"

(Lancashire Life)

"A Delightful Play; It made me laugh, it made me sing, it made me think."

(What's Good To Do Lakelands)

"A small gem of writing and acting within a jewellery box of a production."

(The British Theatre Guide)
