Described by The San Francisco Chronicle as “[A] richly timeless commentary on nothing less than the tragicomedy of human existence,” Our Town has been considered an American Classic since it debuted on Broadway in 1938. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the play has seen four Broadway revivals, the most recent garnering a Tony Award nomination for Paul Newman. This simple, yet beautifully told, story draws us in to witness the everyday lives of the citizens of Grover’s Corners as they deal with the changes wrought by the turning of the Twentieth Century. Poignant, heart-felt, funny, sad, and insightful, this masterpiece is certain to entertain you. Join us, won’t you?
