By William Inge
American Playwright, William Inge, wrote Bus Stop in 1955. This comedy is filled with sentimental characters and easily charms audiences with it’s slice-of-life storyline. Bus Stop is a tribute to a simpler time, that maybe wasn’t so simple after all. The story takes place in the American midwest, at a street-corner restaurant outside of Kansas City. A snowstorm of epic proportions has forced an inter-state bus to stop for the night. The passengers are marooned together in the restaurant until the storm passes. One by one, the bus passengers are introduced, and their individuals quirks and personalities intertwine into a story of conflict and comedy!
