Picnic

Written by William Inge
Directed by Cameron Watson

Powerful, moving, and ripe for revival, Inge’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama is not simply a breezy summer romance. Set in small town Kansas, this is a sexy world, dangerous and cruel, where residents keep each other in their place while longing to break free.

“CRITIC’S CHOICE… poetic realism, wry humor and a surging erotic charge… intelligently gripping” — David Nichols, Los Angeles Times

“FIVE STARS… Antaeus delivers at the very pinnacle of the art.” — Ron Irwin, Examiner.com 

“…all checkered gingham with a dark underbelly that Antaeus exposes with élan.”— Michael Sheehan, On Stage Los Angeles

“expert and streamlined production… timeless.” — Gil Kaan, Broadway World

“a stunning production at Antaeus directed ever so lovingly by Cameron Watson and boasting a superlative ensemble…” — Don Grigware, Broadway World

“Pitch-perfect… truly inspired direction with a pair of radically different, equally unbeatable casts, both of which must be seen if you love great theater…” — Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA

“A theatrical feast… an exemplary group of Antaeus performers… gorgeously designed… [a] delicious ‘Picnic’ ” — Les Spindle, EDGE

“Funny, sexy, moving and filled with life” — Michael Van Duzer, Showmag.com
