Our Town

It was performed for the first time in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1938. Wilder received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Our Town, and the play is widely considered to be the quintessential American play. Countless adaptations have been staged or otherwise performed.

Thornton Wilder’s Our Town offers an honest portrayal of wholesome American life through the use of pantomime and minimal set, allowing the focus to be on the show’s message. It is simplicity at its finest. The setting of Grover’s Corners belongs not only to the townsfolk, but also to the audience as the character of the Stage Manager frequently breaks the fourth wall.

The audience is drawn into the daily life of Grover’s Corners and gets to know the townsfolk, especially the Gibbs and Webb families. The title rings true because Grover’s Corners is everybody’s town. Everyone has experienced loss like George and Emily, and the final acts emphasizes the ephemeral quality of life; nothing lasts forever. As the stars come out over Grover’s Corners and the play comes to an end, the audience is left with a reminder of life’s beauty.I
