William Inge's Pulitzer Prize-winning Picnic is a timeless American drama about the battle between restraint and desire. On a balmy Labor Day in the 1950s, a seductive drifter ambles into a small town in Kansas while its citizens are busy preparing for their annual picnic. And when he awakens the desire of a young woman who calls this town home, it disrupts a number of lives within this tightknit community, forever changing it. The Tony Award-winning Picnic tells an iconic and affecting story about the desire to lead a more fulfilling life ... and the chances we're willing to take in order to achieve it. Learn More

In Orpheus Descending, a young charismatic musician descends on a small Southern town. He forms a relationship with a passionate woman with a tragic past who is trapped in a bad marriage. The play exhibits many of Williams' typical themes: loneliness and desire, sexuality and repression, the longing for freedom. Violence lurks just below the surface, and it bursts into the open at the play's end.
