A Heartland Comedy
By William Inge
September 5 - September 26, 2004
William Inge is an American original: his comedy rings of truth and he wears his heart proudly on his sleeve. No one has greater respect for the drama found in everyday life. Inge sets BUS STOP during a howling blizzard, but the raging storm is nothing compared to what goes on inside a roadside diner when a stranded bus traps its strange collection of passengers, including a nightclub singer and a cowboy with the romantic subtlety of a headstrong bull. If you've only seen the movie starring Marilyn Monroe, the play will be a revelation- subtle, funny, deeply touching, and brimming with hope.
