Our Town

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama presents a timeless commentary on the transience of human existence.

date January 25, 2013 — February 24, 2013

Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry—and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life. Wilder transforms their ordinary story into a poignant and captivating exploration of mortality and the interconnectivity of human beings.

In celebration of the play’s 75th-anniversary year, Stephen Rayne (The Heavens Are Hung In Black, Sabrina Fair and Parade) returns to direct a diverse cast, creating an Our Town for our time.
