WE ARE TRAFFIC: AN UBER ADVENTURE Comes to the Fringe Festival

"We Are Traffic: An Uber Adventure" returns to the Hollywood Fringe stage in an expanded and updated version, following its critically acclaimed virtual run at the 2021 Edinburgh Festival 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 Los Angeles gig economy via Uber and Lyft. In a timely story simultaneously personal and universal, heartbreaking and hilarious, he explores - through vignettes based on actual passengers - how the vehicles of segregation might just be our best hope for integration.

Written and Performed by Jonathan Tipton Meyers; Directed by Harry Kakatsakis; Produced by: Fringe Management, LLC, in assoc with 3 Gems & Landrogenous Prod.
