Bus Stop

Spring 2018

Bus Stop poster
By William Inge
Bus Stop is set in a diner about 25 miles west of Kansas City in early March 1955. A freak snowstorm has halted the progress of the bus, and the eight characters (five on the bus) have a weather-enforced layover in the diner from approximately 1 to 5 a.m. The characters pass the time exploring their unique lives, loves and challenges to great humor, drama and intrigue.

The production is appropriate for ages 10 and older, and contains light violence and some verbal sexual references.

Running time is projected to be between 90-100 minutes, with no intermission.
