See it now before its gone; “Picnic” by Stage Door Players is in its final week of performances at the North DeKalb Cultural Center.

The scene is set for the production: Kansas. Labor Day Weekend. Adjoining backyards.

Flo Owens lives in one house with her two maturing daughters, and Helen Potts lives in the other with her elderly and invalid mother.

Enter a mysterious man who upsets the balance.

Stage Door Players describes that as the play unfolds “choices, temptations, and sacrifices lead to the prevailing message of ‘Picnic’ that youth is a precious gift that must be savored instead of squandered.”

See the evolution of the play through photos and a preview video, and see the show live through Feb. 18.
