“An Unforgettable evocation of Everytown” – The Guardian
A classic drama that peels back layers of stories of ordinary citizens living in the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901-1931. Hope, disappointment, love, and loss are explored, with an added twist – the ‘Stage Manager’ of the play both narrates and engages with the audience to add richness and complexity. Our Town was Wilder’s most popular play and won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.
