About this show

In this 1955 romantic classic by William Inge (Picnic), a busload of strangers, down on their luck in love and bound for other places, wait out a snowstorm in Grace's Kansas diner. From rodeo champ Bo and Cherie the chanteuse to forlorn Dr. Lyman and starry-eyed Elma, everyone's chasing their slice of the American Dream, and someone to share it with. And yes, that was Marilyn Monroe in the movie.
