Have you ever felt stuck in your life but didn't quite know how to get unstuck? This is the nagging reality for every character in William Inge's Picnic. Set in a small Kansas town in the early 1950s, handsome drifter Hal Carter arrives looking for his former college roommate Alan Seymour, hoping Alan's wealthy father will give him a job. Relentlessly searching for his own place in the world, Hal unwittingly stirs each character's need to be seen and valued--especially Alan's beautiful and restless girlfriend, Madge Owens. Topics include: female oppression, class disparity, sexual awakening, and evolving gender roles.
