Picnic

Critics' Choice

Summer is perfect for a Picnic — especially one that puts all the heat onstage. William Inge's 1953 play transports you to an earlier time, but his golden oldie isn't a nostalgia trip. And in the KCAT's production this past summer, it became a powerfully resonant story, told with humor, emotion and intelligence. The Pulitzer Prize–winning play made a winning start to the company's "Classic American Summer." We found ourselves attached to the small-town Kansans portrayed by an expert group of actors, who connected to one another and to us, and who may have resembled folks from some Labor Day from Inge's own past. We felt their longings, understood their hopes, worried over their dilemmas and, ultimately, accepted their choices. We met them briefly, spent just one night with them, but we remember them still.
