Abstract:

"It wouldn't be fair to say that 'Summer Brave' is the original version of 'Picnic'. I have written before that I never completely fulfilled my original intentions in writing 'Picnic' before we went into production in 1953, and that I wrote what some considered a fortuitous ending in order to have a finished play to go into rehearsal. A couple of years after 'Picnic' had closed on Broadway, after the film version had made its success, I got the early version out of my files and began to rework it, just for my own satisfaction. 'Summer Brave' is the result. I admit that I prefer it to the version of the play that was produced, but I don't necessarily expect others to agree. 'Summer Brave' might not have enjoyed any success on Broadway whatever, nor won any of the prizes that were bestowed upon 'Picnic'. But I feel that it is more humorously true than 'Picnic', and it does fulfill my original intentions."--Page 4.
