T.C. Williams drama students performed playwright William Inge’s Pulitzer Prize-winning "Picnic," a portrait of 1950’s life in America’s heartland, during the last two weekends.

Under the guidance of drama teachers Leslie Jones, executive producer and Hope E. Bachman-Miller, executive director and a 1998 graduate of T. C. Williams, students tackled all aspects of the production from directing and acting to set construction, lights and sound.
