There are two possible outcomes when you're confined to a single location during a snowstorm: Either embrace your inner Jack Torrance and start looking for an available mallet or ax, or use the need for warmth as an excuse for more frisky endeavors. Falling much closer to the latter option are the characters of “Bus Stop.” A stage production written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright William Inge, which originally premiered in 1955 (and was later loosely adapted into a film starring Marilyn Monroe), this Broadway drama follows a number of bus passengers while they spend a weather-enforced layover in a Kansas diner. Balancing several romantic stories against the stress of cabin fever, “Bus Stop” opens at Barksdale Theatre Hanover Tavern on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m., running through Jan. 10. $32-$38.
