A Play by William Inge
Directed by Ann Hearn Tobolowsky
Produced by David Hunt Stafford
This is BUS STOP:
About 25 miles west of Kansas City, a freak snowstorm has halted the progress of a bus, and travelers have a late-night, weather-enforced layover in a local diner. Romantic or quasi-romantic relationships ensue.
Inge’s classic comedy is filled with sentimental characters and a slow-but-pleasant, slice-of-life storyline. The play manages to continually charm modern audiences, if only due to our inherent longing for a simpler, more innocent past.
Most of Inge’s plays are a mixture of comedy and drama. This American treasure is no different.
