Bus Stop is a romance drama written by one of the great, if underappreciated, playwrights of the 20th century: William Inge. Inge won the Pulitzer Prize for Picnic and his Come Back, Little Sheba won a Tony Award as a play and two Academy Awards for its film version. Bus Stop tells the story of Cherie, an aspiring nightclub singer, and her brash young cowboy suitor, stuck in a Kansas diner during a snowstorm. Its original production in 1955 was nominated for 4 Tony Awards. The film version starred Marilyn Monroe as Cherie.
