Picnic

Broadway Play - Drama — 

Sensual, passionate and delightfully funny, PICNIC is a timeless American classic about the line between restraint and desire.

It’s a balmy Labor Day in the American Heartland, and a group of women are preparing for a picnic... but they'll have to lay a lot on the line before they can lay out the checkered cloths. When a handsome young drifter named Hal arrives, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling, especially the beautiful Madge. When Hal is forced out of town, Madge must decide whether their fleeting encounter is worth changing the course of her life.

PICNIC premiered on Broadway in 1953 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.  Picnic returns to Broadway in a striking new production helmed by acclaimed director Sam Gold (Roundabout’s Look Back in Anger, Seminar). Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn stars alongside theatre veterans Reed Birney (The Dream of the Burning Boy) and Elizabeth Marvel (Other Desert Cities).
