About OUR TOWN
Day in and day out, Grover’s Corners is Any Town, USA. The paper is delivered, the milkman visits, time passes and life continues. It is only when such routines are interrupted that the fleeting beauty of the everyday is brought more clearly into perspective. Join us through this elegant portrait of the ordinary but remarkable joys and sorrows that define our lives. Our Town is the best American play celebrating the magic that makes a community.
“While all of Wilder’s work is intelligent, non-synthetic and often moving, as well as funny, it is Our Town that makes the difference. It is probably the finest play ever written by an American.” —Edward Albee
