Noted essayist Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Our Town is widely regarded as one of the highlights of American theater. Wilder was consulted throughout preproduction, and the result is a depiction so true that viewers might feel for a short while as if they are residents of the small town depicted, which was the precise intent of Wilder.
Our Town covers the lives and events of two families in a woodsy New Hampshire village from the year 1900 through 1913. Emily Webb and George Gibbs meet as teenagers and succumb to adolescent affections before maturing, marrying, and bearing a child of their own. The stage manager sparkles as the talkative town pharmacist who narrates the action, stitching together a folksy, nostalgic, bittersweet tapestry of humor, love, and life. Throughout, the play hammers home its message about the preciousness of time in people’s short lives.
