Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

Directed by Allen Schmeltz

Described by Edward Albee as “…the greatest American play ever written,” the story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre—die. This Pulitzer Prize Winning play is timeless in its story and symbolism. This is the definitive edition of the play, in short, the words of the play as Thornton Wilder wanted them spoken on stage.
