Our Town
Often praised as one of the “finest achievements of the stage,” Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-Prize Winning Our Town is an American Classic. Set in the fictional New Hampshire town of Grover’s Corners at the turn of the last century, Our Town takes us through what we initially believe to be a story about small town New England life. Instead, through Wilder’s masterful storytelling, we are given a brilliant meditation on gratitude and the beauty in the everydayness of our lives.
