Delightful! Job well done - not only by the actors but the lighting crew and directing as well.

All of the cast were excellent. A well-blocked in-the-round production of the play. The play seemed very much of its time, but that had its charm and appeal too. Anything Altarena Playhouse presents is worth checking out.

Good solid work by the actors, an excellent ensemble admirably (albeit a bit taciturn) pulling off William inge's prolific and bizarre comedic drama. If Marilyn Monroe had not made the film I doubt this play would continue to be mounted today....continued

A play by William Inge. Directed by Michael Ryken.

Long before The Breakfast Club, there was Bus Stop. It’s winter on the Great Plains, and a snowstorm near Kansas City has stranded a group of bus passengers at a local diner. During their weather-enforced overnight layover, the diverse group of strangers develop short-lived but revealing relationships as they learn about each other—and about themselves.
