Description:

WINNER OF THE 1953 PULITZER PRIZE The play takes place on Labor Day weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. One house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two awakening young daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality upsets the entire group. Hal is a most-interesting character a child of parents who ignored him, self-concious of his failings and his hard luck. Flo is sensitively wary of the temptations Hal poses for her daughters. But Madge, bored with being merely a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement that Hal promises. “Few writers have captured women in their social environments as well as William Inge and it’s in that respect that PICNIC, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 retains its power.” – Curtain Up Published 1953, 78 pages.
