This 1953 Pulitzer Prize Winning play takes place on Labor Day in the joint back yards of two middle aged widows. One house belongs to Flo Owens who lives with her two awakening daughters, Madge and Millie and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts who lives with her invalid mother. Into this atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter whose animal vitality upsets the entire group. Flo is sensitively wary of the temptations Hal poses for her daughters. Their reactions and decisions regarding Hal bring startling choices and changes to their futures. Inge captures women in their social environments beautifully and Picnic retains the same power now as it did in 1953.
