Archives - Picnic

by William Inge

Directed by Carole Couzens

Saturday 6th – Saturday 13th March 1982 in the Auditorium

A Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the effect a virile vagabond has on a group of women in a small Kansas town.

Inge, whose other work includes the better known Come Back Little Sheba, and Bus Stop, was a master of well-made, realistic drama informed by his intimate knowledge of small town life and illuminated by his skill in expressing the deep yearnings — and guilts — of simple people. He was born in Independence Kansas in 1913 and died in 1973. Picnic was written in 1953.
