BorderLight’s mission is to present innovative theatre that inspires, builds cross-cultural understanding, and celebrates the diversity of the human experience.  Public transportation has been a cornerstone of many in the City of Cleveland, playing a vital role in connecting people and as a socio-economic driver to employment.

This theatrical experience is sure to be an enlightening and entertaining way to discover the history of public transportation and its importance to our community.
