Our Town

Our Town

November 4 - 15, 2009

Playwright: Thornton Wilder

Director: Mark Danni

Description: OUR TOWN is one of the warmest and most deeply human plays to have come out of the theatre. In the first act the author genially outlines the history of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire., and carries you into the houses of the Gibbs & Webb families. You arrive at breakfast time and are carried through one entire day in the lives of these good people. The second act concerns the love affair between young George Gibbs & Emily Webb, and thus culminates in a moving wedding scene. In the third act we are led to the cemetery on the hill, where many of the townspeople we have come to know so well are patiently and smilingly awaiting not "judgment" but greater understanding. Into their midst is led a girl, a little wishful to go back to life, to live again with her memories. But she is shown how futile it is to return. The past cannot be re-lived. Living people, humans, occupied by their petty occupations and small thoughts, know little of true joy or happiness.

"Our Town is an attempt to find a value above all prices for the smallest events in our daily life."

- Thorton Wilder
