More About Picnic
The play is a Pulitzer Prize winner that happens in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. The first house belongs to Flo Owens who lives with her two daughters, Madge and Millie, and a "spinster" schoolteacher boarder. The second house, on the other hand, is owned by Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother.
Then a young man named Hal Carter comes along. A man whose animal vitality upsets the whole group. Flo then becomes sensitive to Hal's temptations while he poses for her daughters. Her worries are justified because both of her daughters are awakening and bored with their lives.
