“The play is an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life.” -Thornton Wilder

Our Town . . . a great American play, in the words of Donald Margulies, …”perhaps, the great American Play. Its unfashionable insistence on embracing wonders as well as woe is both gallant and exhilarating. Our Town leaves us with a sense of blessing, and the unspoken but palpable command to achieve gratitude in what remains of our days on earth. It touches the soul like a miracle.”

Featuring: Wanda McCaddon* as the Stage Manager, with Greg Ayers, Jeff Bryant, Keith Burkland, China Raven-Crawford, Susi Damilano, Ashkon Davaran, Lauren English, Catz Forsman , Jean Forsman, Celik Kayalar, Mark Knudsen, Esther Mulligan, Hal Savage, Pat Sieler and Dan Wilson.

Our Town debuted in 1938 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In the words of playwright Donald Margulies, it is “perhaps the great American Play.” Reviewing the original New York production, the New York Times said Our Town “transmuted the simple events of human life into a universal reverie.” Called America’s most read and most produced play; it has also been translated into many languages and seen internationally in Poland, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, Korea and elsewhere.
