An uproarious comedy with romance and compassion, BUS STOP is the story of eight lonely people stranded at a roadside diner in the middle of a howling snowstorm. What do an aspiring singer, two cowboys, two waitresses, a professor, and a bus driver have in common? Under Mr. Inges expert hand, what results is a story of how we seek ways to connect in ways that are often very funny, very human, and uncompromisingly true.
William Inge has emerged as one of the great, if under-appreciated, American playwrights of the mid-20th century. Rife with sexual tension and humor, Bus Stop was nominated for four Tony Awards during its original run. Directed by Christian Haines.
Mr. Inge should be a great comfort to all of us…he brings to the theater a kind of warm-hearted compassion, creative vigor, freshness of approach and appreciation of average humanity that can be wonderfully touching and stimulating. – New York Post
…comedy that never strays far from the truth. – New York Times
