WE ARE TRAFFIC: A RIDESHARE ADVENTURE Announced at Edinburgh Fringe

When Jonathan Tipton Meyers lost his girlfriend, his business and his identity, he got in his car and drove. With the audience in the backseat, this bravura monologue chronicles Jonathan's two-year journey through the gig economy with Uber and Lyft.

In a timely story simultaneously personal and universal, melancholy and hilarious, he explores - through vignettes based on actual passengers - how the vehicles of segregation might just be our best hope for integration.
