In this warm and affecting hit comedic drama, iconic playwright William Inge examines some of the many faces of love. Written in 1955 by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Kansas University graduate, Bus Stop is about a group of strangers traveling by bus. Stranded in a rural Kansas diner during a freak snowstorm, the compelling narrative observes eight characters as they experience frustration, tears and laughter, examine their own motivations and forge unlikely romantic connections in a single night.
