Romance on the road
“Bus Stop”, a romantic comedy by William Inge, will be performed in the conference room of BNH Hospital Bangkok in Soi Convent on September 20-22 and 27-29 at 7.30pm.
Directed by Michael Allman and produced by Charles Chester and Don Harrelson, the romantic comedy starts in the middle of a howling snowstorm when a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four weary travellers are going to have to hole up until morning. They are Cherie, a nightclub singer, the 21-year-old cowboy who’s pursuing her, a middle-aged scholar, the bus driver, the owner of the diner and a young girl who works there.
Tickets cost Bt500 at www.BangkokCommunityTheatre.com.
