Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

Directed by Duane Draper

The theatrical classic, Our Town, is considered by many to be the greatest American play. Looking at the themes of love, daily living, community, and life and death, Our Town asks the actor and the audience to consider how we imagine ourselves in our community, our world, and beyond. Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize, Our Town is, as noted in The New York Post, “one of the sagest, warmest, and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our [American] theatre.”
