In this 1955 romantic comedy, a late-season blizzard forces a highway shutdown and detains five weary travelers overnight at a small midwestern diner. Stranded together, this motley crew (an aging professor with a predilection for younger women, a rodeo star bent on marrying a woman who doesn't love him, a struggling young nightclub singer) explores individual hopes and dreams over coffee, donuts and country music. A big-hearted celebration of love and transformation, Inge's delightful play harkens to an earlier era. Featuring guest artists Sarah Gay, David Jones and David Stahl. "A feel good slice of 1950s Americana."
