Theatre Performance - Picnic

A quiet Labor Day in the backyards of a small Kansas town is disrupted by the arrival of young Hal Carter, a whirlwind of charm and trouble, who is visiting his fraternity brother for the weekend.  In a place defined by its fragile hopes for the future, Hal's energy cracks open new possibilities for those he encounters.  By the time the weekend is over, lives are changed and hearts are broken for the tough, genuine, and vulnerable townspeople left behind.  At times beautiful and brutal, Picnic explores the longing, desire, and oppression of mid-century Midwestern life.
