Current Season

Bus Stop
By William Inge
Directed by John Tilford
February 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 

In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner.  All roads are blocked, and four or 5 weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning.  Cherie, an erstwhile “chanteuse”, is the passenger with the most to worry about. She’s been pursued, made love to, and finally kidnapped by a young cowboy with a ranch of his own and the romantic methods of an unusually headstrong bull.  The belligerent cowhand is right behind her, read to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicked, all the way to Montana.   As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the café and bus driver at last find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-age scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the café also gets her first taste of romance.

David Mamet’s 2008 Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commander-in-chief. It’s November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for re-election are looking grim.  Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out, and nuclear war might be imminent.  Through his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her post-White House life, Chuck isn’t ready to give up just yet.  Amidst the biggest right of his political career, the President has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys – saving them from the slaughter before Thanksgiving – and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in a attempt to win back public support.   With Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win.
