It’s Labor Day in the American Heartland. Two widows and their families are preparing for a picnic in two joint backyards...but before they can lay out the checkered cloths, they'll have to lay a lot on the line. Into the story steps Hal, a handsome young drifter, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling, especially the beautiful Madge. When Hal is forced out of town, Madge must decide whether their fleeting encounter is worth changing the course of her life.
Sensual, passionate, and delightfully funny, Picnic is an endearing portrait about the line between family and self-reliance, restraint and desire.
William Inge's timeless American classic and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
