Event Description

Odyssey Theatre Ensemble presents a revival of the sensual, passionate and delightfully funny Pulitzer Prize winning play by William Inge. Set in small town Kansas, this is a sexy world, dangerous and cruel, where residents keep each other in their place while longing to break free. When a handsome young drifter named Hal arrives on the eve of the annual Labor Day picnic, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling — especially the beautiful Madge. Friendships are pushed to the limit and the fragile line between restraint and desire is stretched thin. Winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. Odyssey Theatre, 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025; $25-$40 / Pay-What-You-Will at Monday evening performances; (310) 477-2055; OdysseyTheatre.com.
