When people are unexpectedly thrown together in close quarters, storytelling magic happens. William Inge’s 1955 play, Bus Stop, tells the tale of a group of travelers who end up stuck at a diner near Kansas City during a snowstorm. One character, Cherie, deals with a cowboy’s unwelcome advances while seven other main characters have complex issues revealed as the story unfolds. With romance, drama, and even a little comedy, The Toledo Rep’s performance of Bus Stop has all the trappings of a great story.
