PICNIC

BY WILLIAM INGE

DIRECTED BY JACK CUMMINGS III

 

FEBRUARY 23 – APRIL 23

The Gym at Judson
243 Thompson St at West 4th St

Performed in repertory with Come Back, Little Sheba

When a gorgeous drifter Hal arrives in a small Kansas town, no one is prepared. He brings with him the possibilities and promises — some true some false — of a life with real options. His instant and incendiary chemistry with local 18-year old Madge unexpectedly destroys the illusions of comfort harbored by everyone we meet in this heartland’s physically expansive and emotionally suffocating landscape.  Inge’s legendary Pulitzer-prize winning play Picnic is over 60 years old but the American questions of sex as currency, of class as possibility, and youth as opportunity are timeless.
