On a sweltering Labor Day morning, the women of a quiet neighborhood on the wrong side of the tracks are preparing for the annual picnic. This seemingly placid feminine environment is disrupted when Hal Carter, a muscular and charming young drifter hops off the freight train, and straight into these women's lives. Hearts are broken and lives are changed in the following twenty-four hours, as Hal’s lively, dangerous, masculine energy wakes up the sleepy community. A small Kansas town in the 1950s is the setting for William Inge’s bittersweet melodrama Picnic, which explores themes of sexuality, repression, rites of passage, and disappointment.

Winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize and the Critics Circle Award. “Few writers have captured women in their social environments as well as William Inge and it’s in that respect that PICNIC, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953, retains its power.” —CurtainUp.com.
