Our Town

Season: 2016 Main Stage Season

Author: Thornton Wilder

Director: Léland Downs Karas

Genre: Drama

Location: Colleen O Williams Theater, Winder, GA 30680


Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow 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. This play was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
