ABOUT THE PLAY
This timeless drama of life in the mythical village of Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, has become an American classic with universal appeal. Thornton Wilders most frequently performed play, Our Town appeared on Broadway in 1938 to wide acclaim, and won the Pulitzer Prize. From the very beginning, Our Town has been produced throughout the world.

Indeed the plays success across cultural borders around the world attests to its being something much greater than an American play: it is a play that captures the universal experience of being alive. Donald Margulies in the Foreword to Our Town.

Our Town explores the relationship between two young Grovers Corners neighbors, George Gibbs and Emily Webb, whose childhood friendship blossoms into romance, and then culminates in marriage. When Emily loses her life in childbirth, the circle of life portrayed in each of the three acts of Our Town--growing up, adulthood, and death--is fully realized.

Wilder offers a couple of chairs on a bare stage as the backdrop for an exploration of the universal human experience. The simple story of a love affair is constantly rediscovered because it asks timeless questions about the meaning of love, life and death.


THE CRITICS SAY...
"...one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre." - New York Post

"While all of Wilder's work is intelligent, non-synthetic and often moving, as well as funny, it is Our Town that makes the difference. It is probably the finest play ever written by an American." - Edward Albee

"Thornton Wilder's masterpiece [...] An immortal tale of small town morality [and] [...] a classic of soft spoken theater." - The New York Times

"Beautiful and remarkable one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre [...] A spiritual experience." - New York Post

"No American play describes more powerfully how we imagine ourselves." - New York Daily News

"No play ever moved me so deeply." - Alexander Woolcott, The New Yorker
