Despite its reputation as a hoary old warhorse, Thornton Wilder's meta theatre play about small town American comings and goings is rich both in its depiction of everyday life and theatrical possibilities.

Why See Our Town?

Broadway ShowsPlaysStars on Stage

the Pulitzer prize-winning drama

Set in the fictional town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, Our Town is famed for its universal relevance and its celebration of what it means to be human, from the exciting to the mundane. Although set over a century ago, its tenet remains just as relevant to our lives today. 

What is the story?

Central to the story are characters, George and Emily, who grow up and get married before the audience's eyes. Revisiting the town's inhabitants over three periods, the play also uses meta-theatre to tell the tale, and that's where The Stage Manager steps in to oversee, fill in and engage with the audience. As the townsfolk get on with the day-to-day of their lives, The Stage Manager frequently interrupts the action to report to the crowd and even field questions from "audience members". As the years pass for the characters,  daily life soon turns into a poignant mediation on love and marriage, death, and eternity.
