One of the pleasures of Community Theatre is that they can present classic plays with large casts, giving those who never had an opportunity to see these plays, a look into our theatre treasures. William Inge’s Bus Stop is such a play. Produced in 1955, it told the story of a group of people stranded by a snowstorm in Kansas at a bus stop. The film of the play was only loosely based on the play which won four Tony awards.There is drama, comedy and romance in this look at a world that is now gone.
The Dorset Players are performing the play March 3 to March 12. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. Having talked to the director, Paul Michael Brinker and two of the actors, Dana Haley and Bobby Leonard, we are looking forward to it eagerly.
