About this show

A classic timepiece in American theatre, Picnic was written by one of America's most gifted-and tortured-dramatists. In William Inge's masterpiece, a handsome drifter blows into a small Kansas town just before the Labor Day picnic. He takes odd jobs, a room in a local boarding house and the attention of the entire female population. A catalyst for a change, the drifter shakes the very foundations of the town, dredging up suppressed feelings and buried resentments as his smoldering sexuality ignites tensions between a single mom and her teenage daughters. Nagle Jackson directs.
