All aboard! Family singer songwriter David Gibb is proud to be the driver of the world’s first bus to be powered by song. However, his passengers’ choice of music can sometimes be a little unusual. From talking sunflowers to digging for buried treasure, David needs your help to find the perfect song for each of his passengers and get his magical, musical bus rolling down the road!

David’s songwriting draws from a wide range of musical influences, deftly blending folk, jazz, reggae and rock and roll, always with an emphasis on quality and musicianship reminiscent of the classics. Guaranteed to have both parents and children singing along in no time, this is show the whole family can enjoy together.

Rolling Down the Road was first performed in September 2019 at Half Moon Theatre. It was due to tour nationally from April 2020 as part of Half Moon Presents but this tour was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The production did not retour. The production, however, was filmed in Autumn 2020 for digital screenings during the COVID-19 pandemic. From autumn 2021/22 the production was available to watch via Half Moon’s On Demand service.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
