Picnic by William Inge
September 16 to October 2, 2016
1953 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
“Picnic is really a play about how you always want what you cannot have. Every character in it longs for something that is just beyond reach—beauty, marriage, respectability, economic security, true love, emotional peace. Inge writes warmly, with such sensitive, understated compassion about little people desperate for a place in a bigger world that his work is timeless” – New York Observer

Migrant Mother By Ken White
January 13 to 22, 2017
Whether planned or spontaneous, posed or candid, a photograph puts a frame around a moment, thus creating context and story. Playwright Ken White’s extensive research on Florence Owens Thompson and Dorothea Lange has resulted in a theatrical work that calls these two iconic women out of time and space so that you may hear their memories, their journeys, and their stories. PTP proudly returns to this play in an expanded and fully realized production.
