A small Kansas town in the 1950s is the setting for William Inge’s bittersweet melodrama Picnic. On a sweltering Labor Day morning, the women of a quiet, working-class neighborhood are preparing for the annual picnic when charming young drifter Hal Carter hops off of a freight train and into their lives. Hearts are broken and lives are changed, as Hal’s dangerous energy challenges the restrictive mid twentieth-century American values of this sleepy community.
