written by William Inge

COMPENSATION: The joy of performing - we are a community theater and are unable to pay at this time.


The play is set in a diner about 30 miles west of Kansas City in early March 1955. A freak snowstorm has halted the progress of the bus, and the eight characters (five on the bus) have a weather-enforced layover in the diner from approximately 1 to 5 a.m. Romantic or quasi-romantic relationships ensue between Grace and Carl, Professor Lyman and Elma and Cherie and Bo. Virgil and Will are the older authority figures outside the relationships.



Dr. Gerald Lyman:

A college philosophy professor who is articulate and charming but cannot hold a position, partially due to his resistance to any kind

of authority, and partially due to his unfortunate taste for young women. He also has an obvious drinking problem.


Virgil Blessing:

An older, wiser cowboy who has become a father figure to Bo (who was orphaned at the age of ten) as well as Bo's head ranch
