Passion and propriety collide in William Inge’s Picnic, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama. It's the last day of summer as shirtless, shiftless drifter Hal Carter swaggers into a sleepy Kansas burg, stumbles into the backyard and the lives of Flo Owens and her two daughters and ignites libidos all over the place. By the time everybody’s ready to return to work, Hal has made off with the heart of the prettiest girl in town. Like a breeze across a late-summer plain, Picnic is a stirring reminder that in life and love, the only thing scarier than being held is being held back.
