A snowstorm strands a bus outside of Kansas City, and its passengers — including a stubborn, lovestruck cowboy and the nightclub singer he hopes to marry – seek shelter and warmth at a roadside diner. The motley crew spends one night together, filled with bluster, heartache, and laughter, searching for love in this classic American comedy. Former Artistic Director Nicholas Martin returns to direct.
Approximate running time: 2 hours, including two 10-minute intermissions.
“William Inge was an indisputably major artist, one of this country's half-dozen greatest playwrights.” — Wall Street Journal
“William Inge had a timeless sense of humor, and this play, perhaps his greatest, has a very modern feeling of openness and honesty. He was celebrated in his time, but I believe his plays are just hitting their finest moment. I know that Nicholas Martin will bring his terrific sense of comedy and warmth — so appreciated by Boston audiences — to bear in our production.” — Peter DuBois
