"THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE"
comedy/drama
4M/1F (some flexibility gender casting)

Four persons must change buses in the middle of nowhere. The station is meager: only a couple of benches, a soft-drink machine, and a crazy person, The Keeper of the Machine,  who announces that they will not leave until one of them kills him (or her) and assumes his (or her) place as The Keeper of the Machine. Who is The Keeper? What is the significance of the Machine, which, no matter what selection YOU make, you always get Coke. Terrifying, dramatic, bizarre, and humorous.
