Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written,” Our Town presents the
small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and
Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play
depicts the simple daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love,
marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Thornton
Wilder’s final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the
American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.
