Day in and day out, Grover’s Corners is Any Town, USA. The paper is delivered, the milkman visits, time passes and life continues. It is only when such routines are interrupted that the fleeting beauty of the everyday is brought more clearly into perspective. The Stage Manager guides us through this elegant portrait of the ordinary but remarkable joys and sorrows that define our lives. Our Town is the greatest American play celebrating the magic that makes a community.
“Our Town demonstrates in the most gentle and plain way, without a lot of fireworks or anything, how difficult it is to be a human being… You could flip through it once a week for the rest of your life and, in some mysterious way, something would leap out at you that you needed that week.” —Playwright Will Eno (Gnit, 2013 Humana Festival of New American Play).
"Beautiful and remarkable one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre...A spiritual experience." —The New York Post
”No American play describes more powerfully how we imagine ourselves."- The New York Daily News
"No play ever moved me so deeply." —Alexander Woolcott, The New Yorker
