An enduring American treasure and one of the greatest plays of world theatre, Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” is as radical now as its premiere in 1938. This Pulitzer Prize winning play has been given an even more immersive makeover for today’s audiences. Wilder's portrait of life, love and death set in Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, a fictional New England town at the start of the 20th century could happen just as easily in Pocklington. It follows the romance and marriage of Emily and George, and through them, the play reveals the hidden mysteries behind the smallest details of everyday life. Amerrycan Theatre will make your trip to Grover’s Corners an experience that’s immersive, tough, funny, heart-wrenching and uplifting.

Recommended for audiences of all ages.
