Pepperdine University’s Theatre Department will present William Inge's dramatic comedy "Bus Stop" at the Malibu campus' Lindhurst Theatre Jan. 22-26.
All performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 to Saturday, Jan. 26, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. There will be a talkback with the cast and director following the Wednesday night performance.
In this Tony Award-winning play, a handful of weary travelers find themselves stranded during a snowstorm at a rural Kansas diner, where the servings include friendship, romance, and personal insight. As the long night passes, the denizens of this small diner get to know each other and themselves a little better.
"'Bus Stop' is an endearing, deceptively simple but never sentimental play that taps into universal feelings," said director Scott Alan Smith. "I have wanted to direct a production at Pepperdine for some time and it finally came together this season.”
"Bus Stop" is being presented as part of Pepperdine's Mary Pickford-Stotsenberg Performances series.
