OUR TOWN

 

SEPTEMBER 21-22 & 28-29, 2018

 

A landmark in American drama, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning OUR TOWN tells the story of a small town, Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, in order to tell us the story of every town, the whole world over.  We follow the Gibbs and Webb families, residents of Grover’s Corners, through twelve years of life changes—from the mundane in Act I, “Daily Life,” to the romantic in Act 2, “Love and Marriage,” to the devastating in Act III, “Death and Eternity.”

Through the young lovers Emily and George, their strong and loving parents, and the many other Grover’s Corners’ locals, Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human.  “Oh, earth,” Emily Webb exclaims towards the play’s end, “you’re too wonderful for anyone to realize you.”  With humor, wit, and exceptionally powerful storytelling, Our Town offers a unique opportunity for audience members to make precisely that realization.

Paramount Productions is pleased to present a new staging of this theatrical masterpiece, directed and diesigned by Barry Smoot, the theatre's Artistic Director.
