One of the most beloved American plays ever written, Our Town follows the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry and eventually–in one of the most famous scenes in American theater–die. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, Our Town depicts the fictional small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity.” In the next step for a play that Wilder conceived from the beginning as a play about everywhere, this version is in three languages–English, Spanish and Creole. Filled with live music and infused with layers of culture and community, this special production celebrates Grover’s Corners as an international address and finds the shared humanity in all its inhabitants.
