By William Inge
Directed by Danièle Sanderson
It’s a balmy labour day in the American heartland, and a group of women are preparing for the annual picnic. Into their backyards walks a young drifter, Hal Carter, whose uncouth manners and titillating charm send 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 is a superb piece of Mid-20th Century American storytelling by William Inge, who along with Tennessee Williams, defined American theatre in the 1950s.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
Comp booking deadline for staff and students: midnight Sunday 17th March 2019. Booking is one ticket per staff/student only; general tickets can be bought via the Crescent Theatre's website. If you no longer require your ticket, please cancel your booking prior to the performance date.
Please note: if you are booking complimentary staff/student tickets, it may not be possible to purchase full price seats adjacent to the comp seats as the Main House operates a reserved seating plan. The Crescent will try to accommodate where available at their discretion, but please be aware this might not always be possible.
