Four veteran actors, Mary Kieffer, Ken Schroeder, Karlyn Swords and Gary Talsky, will bring to life a total of 18 characters in eight short scenes set in a small Midwestern bus station. Each scene transitions seamlessly into the next and varies from comedic to poignant.

The Prairie Arts Center programming is funded in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council and The Princeton Closet.
