All hail the Keanaissance — for bringing him back to our screens, and often; and for giving everyone an excuse to shower his past hits with love as well. Before he was Neo and John Wick, he wasn't just one half of Bill and Ted or Point Break's surfing FBI agent Johnny Utah, but also a guy trying to stop the bus that couldn't slow down.

We know you're a fan, because who isn't? Alongside the aforementioned Point Break, Speed is one of action gems of the 90s — and Keanu is at the heart of both of them. And, we know you've always wanted to relive the latter film's high-stakes action movie magic, so here's your chance. Brisbanites, get ready to step onboard a vintage bus and prepare for the ride of your life.

After thrilling fans and making plenty of new ones during several past Brisbane runs, Speed: The Movie, The Play is bringing its high-octane thrills back to the the Queensland capital in 2023 at Wynnum Fringe. It's taking on passengers between Friday, November 17–Saturday, December 2 from George Clayton Park, with shows held Friday–Sunday — and this is one stint of public transport chaos (and 90s nostalgia) that you should willingly sign up for.
