Stephens College "Picnic" preview by Amy Wilder

Starting tonight, Stephens College brings the 1953 Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Picnic" to life at the Macklanburg Playhouse. The story was written by renowned playwright William Inge, who taught at Stephens from 1938 to 1943 and was a contemporary of Tennessee Williams. It takes place over an approximately 24-hour period one Labor Day weekend in 1950s rural Kansas, when rakish Hal Carter, played by 2010 Stephens graduate Dru Silva, comes to town and disrupts the sleepy equilibrium of small-town life.
