The company that brought you the OBIE-award winning revival of The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, returns to William Inge, presenting two of his greatest plays in rotating repertory: Picnic and Come Back, Little Sheba. These plays in rotating repertory offer audiences a rare opportunity to experience back-to-back masterpieces that expose what Elia Kazan termed the "quiet terror" of Inge's world. 

When a gorgeous drifter Hal arrives in a small Kansas town, no one is prepared. He brings with him the possibilities and promises — some true some false — of a life with real options. His instant and incendiary chemistry with local 18-year old Madge unexpectedly destroys the illusions of comfort harbored by everyone we meet in this heartland’s physically expansive and emotionally suffocating landscape.  Inge's legendary Pulitzer-prize winning play Picnic is over 60 years old but the American questions of sex as currency, of class as possibility, and youth as opportunity are timeless.
