William Inge
Picnic, set in a small Kansas town in the early 1950s,
depicts the lives of 'ordinary' Americans with a focus on
family relationships and peoples' boredom, loneliness,
hopefulness and restlessness; underlying theme: frank
portrayal of sexuality; an arrogant drifter snatches the
prettiest girl in town away from his buddy. Synopsis

Labor Day, early morning
The same day, just before sunset
Early next morning, before daylight
Later the same morning, after sunrise

First stage presentation in England, second production
of the Belgrade Theatre's inaugural season
