Tickets are on sale for River City Rep's eighth season opener, Bus Stop, says Patric McWilliams.

In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City, headed for Montana, pulls up at an isolated roadside diner. The highway is blocked in all directions and the weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. On board is an innocent cowboy who has met the girl of his dreams and has forced her onto the bus to make her his wife.

This production of Bus Stop marks the centennial of William Inge, the playwright who wrote Picnic, Dark At The Top Of The Stairs, and Come Back, Little Sheba.

The 1956 movie version of Bus Stop starred Marilyn Monroe.

Bus Stop plays Oct 9 - 13 at East Bank Theatre. Reservations, 318-868-5888. Tickets are $35.
