UMD theatre department presents Inge’s ‘Bus Stop’By mid-winter people are tired of cold, snow and being holed up waiting for spring.
By mid-winter people are tired of cold, snow and being holed up waiting for spring. Imagine being stuck in the middle of nowhere, in a snowstorm, with a bunch of strangers. Get to know your fellow travelers when the University of Minnesota Duluth theater presents “Bus Stop.”
Based on Willam Inge’s earlier one-act play, “People in the Wind,” “Bus Stop” explores the circumstances of a bus load of weary travelers forced to spend the night at a roadside diner by a snowstorm. Overnight, a pair of young lovers struggle to find love in the modern world, a bus driver explores a long-overdue friendship, and a middle-aged scholar faces his past.
Directed by Michael Perreca, “Bus Stop” runs at 7:30 p.m. March 13-15 and March 25-29 and 2 p.m. March 30. All performances are held in Dudley Experimental Theatre, Marshall Performing Arts Center.
Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $11 for seniors and students, and $6 for UMD students and children. Tickets may be purchased by calling 726-8561.
