Written by Thornton Wilder, "Our Town" explores the lives of people living in a small, quintessentially American town. It was first produced in 1938 and received the Pulitzer Prize for Literature.
The play is divided into three aspects of the human experience: Daily Life, Love / Marriage, and Death / Loss.
"Thornton Wilder's masterpiece...An immortal tale of small town morality [and]...a classic of soft spoken theater." — The New York Times
"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
"Beautiful and remarkable one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre...A spiritual experience." —The New York Post
"No American play describes more powerfully how we imagine ourselves." - The New York Daily News
