Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama presents a timeless commentary on the transience of human existence.

Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry—and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life. Wilder transforms their ordinary story into a poignant and captivating exploration of mortality and the interconnectivity of human beings.

In celebration of the play's 75th-anniversary year, Stephen Rayne (The Heavens Are Hung In Black, Sabrina Fair and Parade) returns to direct a diverse cast, creating an Our Town for our time.
