William Inge's "Picnic" Opens this Friday

William Inge, probably best known for "Bus Stop," at The Music Box Theatre in New York City in 1953. The film version was later released by Columbia Pictures, starring William Holden, Kim Novak and Rosalind Russell, and directed by Joshua Logan.

Starting this weekend, Montgomery Theater revives this classic play that draws heavily from Inge's boyhood in Kansas. It's as much a story of love and loss, as it is about class and public perception, particularly dealing with the undercurrent of change that was starting to bubble up in 1950s America.
