“There's a charge crackling in the sultry Kansas air.” — New York Magazine



By the author of Come Back Little Sheba and Bus Stop comes this classic Pulitzer Prize winning comedy. On a sweltering Labor Day weekend in a small Kansas town, the women of a quiet neighborhood are preparing for the annual picnic. The group consists of two middle-aged widows: Flo Owens, the protective mother of two teenage daughters, and good-natured Helen Potts, happy to get a break from taking care of her elderly, invalid mother. They are joined by Flo’s border, Rosemary Sydney, a spinster schoolteacher. Suddenly, a handsome young drifter named Hal Carter appears, immediately capturing the women’s attention. In the next 24 hours, hearts are broken and lives are changed as Hal’s charming yet dangerous animal vitality pits the longings of youth against the complacency of middle age.
