When an office full of Chicago real estate salesmen is given the news that all but the top two will be fired at the end of the week, the atmosphere begins to heat up. Shelley Levene, who has a sick daughter, does everything in his power to get better leads from his boss, John Williamson, but to no avail. When his coworker Dave Moss comes up with a plan to steal the leads, things get complicated for the tough-talking salesmen.

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.
