This wacky comedy is about two people who meet on a bus in Ypsilanti, Michigan, and discover they've both had out of body experiences. Bennie survived the car crash that killed his family; Merriam attempted suicide. As their relationship develops, Merriam's neurotic tendencies surface and Bennie's unflappable cheerfulness drives her bananas. She realizes that he is not over his tragedy and she leaves. They meet a month later on the bus. When it arrives at Bennie's stop, the cemetery, he decides to stay on the bus with Merriam.
Jump, I'll Catch You! premeired at Riverwest Theatre in New York City in 1984. It was directed by Loukas Skipitaris.
