OPENING NIGHT! OUR TOWN
By Thornton Wilder
Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Our Town is a life-affirming and timeless classic American play. Simple and profound, Our Town opens with the Stage Manager’s introduction to Grover’s Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire. Take a walk through time and life in a small town, circa 1901. You’ll meet familiar locals such as Doc Gibbs, Howie Newsome and George and Emily in their day-to day activities, all sharing their lives, loves and losses. Wilder’s beautifully written play is a touching reminder of the short journey we’re all on, and a welcome lesson in having gratitude for the time we have together.
