By William Inge
Directed by John Benitz
Drama: Inge’s exploration of small town life, family and the underlying loneliness, boredom and sexual desire that hides behind white picket fences that surround perfect people leading perfect lives, permeates Inge’s vision of 1950’s America. Winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 1953 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, Picnic has been embraced by mass audiences for its simple charms but critics have lauded Picnic for its authentic, beautiful and often painful depiction of love and longing.
