Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward�s University professional theatre training program, continues its 40th anniversary season with Bus Stop by William Inge, directed by Christina J. Moore, running November 8 - 18, 2012.
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.
