About: Our Town

Our Town is set in the fictional community of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, between 1901 and 1913. Beginning with daily life's routines and necessities, the play reveals an American family's intimate and habitual personal lives. Thornton Wilder wanted to strip the play of artifice, minimizing the set and acknowledging the audience. To perform it he said; “All that is needed is the passion to know what life means to us.” This drive for simplicity and truth has created one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century.

Thornton Wilder: “It is an attempt to find value above all for the smallest events in our daily life... My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate Thornton Wilder (1897-1975) was an accomplished novelist and playwright. He is the only writer to win Pulitzer Prizes for both fiction and drama – for his novel The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1927) and two plays, Our Town (1938) and The Skin of our Teeth (1942). His other novels include The Cabala, The Woman of Andros.
