This classic and renowned play by Thornton Wilder was the 1938 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Wilder's greatest and best-known work as a playwright, Our Town opens with the Stage Manager's introduction to Grover's Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire where Wilder often spent summers. The sparse and symbolic qualities of the set suggest Wilder's intention to make Grover's Corners represent all towns. Recommended for all audiences.
