"Picinic" by William Inge

Presented by Chapman University College of Performing Arts (CoPA) at Waltmar Theatre, Chapman University, Orange CA

May 04 - 13 2017
"Picinic" by William Inge

An American theatre classic! Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play.

Directed by John Benitz, this drama by William Inge explores small town life, family, and the loneliness, boredom and sexual desire that hide behind the white picket fences that surround perfect people leading perfect lives.

Picnic has been embraced by generations of audiences for its simple charms, and critics have lauded its authentic, beautiful and often painful depiction of love and longing.


Tickets:  $20 general admission; $15 senior citizens, alumni, and non-Chapman students.
