Chicago knows from recent firsthand experience that a blizzard puts people in unexpected situations. Being snowed in together makes friends… strangers, and strangers…friends. Unable to move on from unpleasant conditions, people become physically stuck. Digging a way out doesn’t always mean a clean exit. Raven Theatrepresents Bus Stop. A blizzard strands a busload at the local diner. The eclectic group of misfits fills the room with oddness. A nightclub singer tries to escape her abductor. A professor gets his drink on. An owner battles a headache. A cowboy wrangles his new filly. A driver takes advantage of the lay-over. They mix it up with a strumming guitarist, reading waitress, and the peace-keeping sheriff. The diner is serving up scrambled eggs with a side of transformation. Bus Stopbreaks people at the crossroads of life.
