Our TownBy Thornton Wilder
Directed by Arthur Beer
“Our Town,” winner of the Pulitzer Prize, is a heartwarming drama centered on a small New Hampshire town in the early 20th century. Grover’s Corner is like any other place in the world; people are born and eventually pass away. But it’s what happens in between that really counts. Through the lives of two families the Gibbs and the Webbs, we are reminded of our core values and the precious details of every day life, in this touching tale of love, life and death.
