The luxury of beauty—its advantages and its consequences—are a few of the conflicts that take hold in this popular, Pulitzer Prize winning story by William Inge. Picnic presents a love triangle involving the beautiful Midge; her not-so-attractive sister, Millie; and the nomadic, charismatic, mysterious, and handsome, Hal. Things begin to unravel when a wealthy suitor, Alan, wants to marry Midge and forces her to choose between her mother’s hopes for a good life with Alan or her own affection for Hal. This play contains strong situations to which some audience members may object and which may not be appropriate for children.
