In William Inge's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, it's a balmy Labor Day in the American Heartland, and a group of women are preparing for a picnic. When a handsome young drifter named Hal arrives, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling, especially the beautiful Madge. When Hal is forced out of town, Madge must decide whether their fleeting encounter is worth changing the course of her life. Tues.-Sat., 8; Wed., Sat. & Sun., 2.
