Fall Play Tickets
“The life of a village against the life of the stars.”
That’s how Thornton Wilder described his Pulitzer-prize-winning play, Our Town, which was stunningly experimental for its time (1938) because of its minimal staging, breaking of the fourth wall, and use of pantomime rather than props. A simple story about daily life, love and marriage, birth and death in a small New England town—Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. It’s one of the most performed plays in American theater, and was last produced at St. Anne’s-Belfield in 1997 on the old Randolph Hall proscenium stage. Although many of us have seen or read Our Town over the years, each new production brings fresh insight to this surprisingly complex play that invites us, the audience, to engage our imaginations and pay attention to the details of our own daily lives.
Our troupe of 20 actors will present Our Town on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 11, at 2:00 p.m. Performances will be held in Grisham Hall on the Greenway Rise Campus (2132 Ivy Road).
We hope you will join us in Grover’s Corners!
