The folks behind the play set on a walking tour of downtown Fayetteville (Alley 38) have a new show that will be performed (mostly) on a regional transit bus.

The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre will present the new show, titled Shelter, beginning on May 18. The new show will take place primarily on routes 1 and 2 of Ozark Regional Transit, with stops at several key locations in South Fayetteville.

According to the synopsis, the show deals with community issues “happening now in South Fayetteville,” including “housing insecurity, public transit, and poverty.”

Shelter is a workshop production of a larger work titled Good Person of South Fayetteville, a play in development by playwright Adrienne Dawes. It’s a continuation of a previous show titled Ride that explored similar themes and issues.

In addition to the opening night performance May 18, performances are also scheduled on May 19, 25, and 26. The shows will begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets are available at a “pay what you can” basis, but the suggested donation is $20.
