Our Town
An undergraduate performance by UC San Diego Theatre & Dance.

Our Town could also be titled: How to be a Human.

Our Town can change lives. It can awaken our awareness of whats it like to be a fully realized human being, with all of its wonder as well as its difficulties. Wilders 1938 play speaks to and highlights the awareness of the beauty of daily life, love and death in a groundbreaking style that brings the audience in on the creative process. Wilder grew tired of a theatre that numbed audiences into the comfort of the drawing room comedy. He changed the landscape of the American Theatre by challenging audiences to fill in scenery with their imaginations, breaking the fourth wall, using the character of the Stage Manager as Greek Chorus intermingling with past, present and future.

Our Town can heal. The day after 9/11 Joanne Woodward woke up and decided that she had to produce Our Town at her theatre in Connecticut. The production moved to Broadway with packed houses. People need it. Edward Albee called Our Town The finest serious American play for its breathtaking statement of what it is to be alive, the wonder and hopeless loss of the space between birth and the grave.
