This classic by playwright and novelist William Inge is set in a diner about 25 miles west of Kansas City. It’s March 1955 and a freak snowstorm has forced a layover at a small town diner in the wee hours of the morning. Romantic relationships ensue among six of the travelers in this drama with splashes of romance and comedy.
