William Inge's Pulitzer Prize–winning play Picnic returns to Broadway in a striking new production helmed by acclaimed director Sam Gold (Roundabout’s Look Back in Anger, Seminar). Passionate, sensual and delightfully funny, Picnic is a timeless American classic about the line between restraint and desire.
It’s a balmy Labor Day in the American Heartland, and a group of women are preparing for a picnic...but they'll have to lay a lot on the line before they can lay out the checkered cloths. When a handsome young drifter named Hal arrives, 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 a timeless American classic about the line between restraint and desire.
Production is scheduled to open Winter of 2013.
