Bus Stop

May 5-May 28, 2017

Written by William Inge

Directed by Kelly Roush

In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a nightclub singer, is the passenger with the most to worry about. She is being avidly pursued by a cowboy on the bus, while others are developing relationships of their own as they wait for sunrise.

“…Mr. Inge has put together an uproarious comedy that never strays from the truth.”

the New York Times


"Inge treats all of his characters with affection and his writing demonstrates a deep understanding of them all. The Classic’s production, directed by Kelly Hilliard Roush, does well by the playwright’s words, and the ensemble cast works together beautifully."

Bus Stop is "smooth and relaxed, rightfully downplaying action and focusing on the interaction of its laudable cast." "Virtually every facet of the production is expertly crafted and delivered."
