Some corniness, also standard for the time, and that can be overlooked. Jan 11, Chelsea McMillen rated it really liked it. Makes me curious about a modern adaption! Tough one. Could've been great but actors didn't seem to feel it.
Jul 13, Marcella rated it really liked it Shelves: book-challenge , plays. Very engaging and funny, although the sexual politics do not hold up in Apr 17, Brittney Cacace rated it really liked it. Having both read and worked on this particular show, I have found I quite like this work. Inge has done a marvelous job of creating characters that actors can create stories for to give more weight to the choices made through the play and enough subtext for readers to impress their own visions onto them.
The experiences of seeing the play and reading it are two very different but rewarding things, both giving new depth to the way one can look and understand the characters. For a show that takes Having both read and worked on this particular show, I have found I quite like this work. For a show that takes place in the 50s, it does a fairly good job of creating universal characters and a story that contemporary audiences can still appreciate.
Grace is a fantastic example, as she is a woman before her time that readers and viewers might be able to liken to someone they may have met before. She is strong and fierce in a coy way, someone who does not need to explain herself or her actions. My biggest qualm with the script is the finale, where it seems that Inge plays into the cliches of RomCom and tosses away any sort of conviction Cherie may have had.
This also depends on how the role is played on stage, but it leaves much to be desired in terms of a satisfactory conclusion. Overall, it is a great work that creates a compelling story and nuanced characters that bring a lot of great elements to the table.
May 23, Shandril rated it liked it. First of all, this is a play. So if you don't like to read scripts, pass this one up. The description of the story caught me because it reminded me of the Twilight Zone episode where a bus full of people get snowed in at a local eatery run by an alien. No such interesting things as interstellar warfare in "Bus Stop" though.
Still, if taken into the context of the time it was written 's you'll find this story an enjoyable quick read. Dec 03, Henry Fosdike rated it liked it. Enjoyed this small town tale of a group of strangers trapped at a bus stop overnight during a blizzard. Written in the fifties, there are an awful lot more stage directions in here than you'd find in a modern play, but that's partly what makes the play come alive on the page.
The characters are by now familiar perhaps not then? It's entertaining and enjoyable. A pleasant read. Sep 28, Andrew rated it really liked it. I wish this story could have had a little bit of a stronger ending. I don't know how I feel about the end, because I don't understand why one character made such a sudden switch. Up until then, I loved this play. It does a really good job at following multiple character relationships.
I just wish the development of that ONE character was stronger, so I could understand her last decision. Oct 22, Katherine rated it liked it Shelves: plays.
Overfamiliar character types but given great lines. Jun 11, Christian rated it really liked it. Some interesting characterization. I could see putting it up, and I think it would entertain most audiences. Has at least three southern accents in it which is hard for me to deal with.
