by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Leo Lion
"This is an 'Our Town' for theatre-makers." 80 years after Thornton Wilder’s brilliantly bittersweet portrait of small-town life first opened on Broadway, the people of Grover’s Corners are back on the small stage, and they’re almost ready to get started... in just a minute... any day now...
This performance-centric take on Our Town thrusts the Stage Manager narrator into the (possibly busted) spotlight. Leaning into Wilder’s famous use of theatrical convention and absent fourth wall, this visit to Grover’s Corners is visually styled after a tech rehearsal, where time is precious, somehow both sluggishly dragging and swiftly running out.
The play is called Our Town. It was written by Thornton Wilder and produced by us.
Our Town will perform April 27th-29th, 2018, at the Hudson Guild Theatre in NYC.
