Picnic
by William Inge

Crafton-Preyer Theatre

Inge's definitive portrayal of love in the American heartland.

Emotions are ignited when rugged drifter Hal blows into town to visit an old college buddy and town rich boy, Alan. Sparks fly when Hal meets Madge, Alan’s girlfriend, and Hal and Madge find in each other something that is missing.
